This applies to all leisure, sport and recreational venues. Currently, our Centre restaurant is closed however when open, a face covering may be removed when eating and drinking in a designated café, bar or restaurant and when playing tennis or exercising. A face mask MUST be worn at all other times, before & after taking part in an activity. For detailed guidance on face coverings and people exempt due to medical reasons and other factors please visit the Welsh Government website.
