SOME services run by Shropshire Council have started to reopen again.

Services across culture and leisure start reopening next Wednesday (December 2) in line with new government guidelines.

Leisure centres and libraries are amongst the facilities that people will be able to use again albeit with restrictions.

COVID-19 safety measures that were installed earlier in the year will remain in place to ensure social distancing and hand hygiene standards can be maintained and the safety of visitors, staff and local communities protected.

“Our sites, facilities and services have been well visited and used since reopening from July and have been important helping us stay active and healthy,” said Lezley Picton, Shropshire Council Cabinet member for culture, leisure, waste and communications

“I’d like to thank everyone who has been following the lockdown rules so diligently and for showing patience and togetherness as we begin to move slowly back to something like normality.”
