The Circle, at Hadley Learning Community has been working hard throughout the Coronavirus pandemic.

From Thursday 3rd December 2020, we are partially re-opening the Community and Leisure Department.
Areas/Activities available from this date are:
· Fitness Classes
· The Fitness Suite
· Limited activities in the Main Swimming Pool
Following the national lockdown 2.0 it has been announced that Telford and Wrekin will be placed in Tier 2. Our Fitness Suite, Classes and Swimming sessions will proceed as normal in a COVID-19 secure way.
The next Tier review will be the 16th December. If at any point Telford and Wrekin is placed into Tier 3, the Fitness Classes will unfortunately be postponed. This will be communicated to our customers closer to the time if required.
We are determined to make your visit to the centre as enjoyable as normal though, as you will appreciate it will still be a while until our facilities return fully to normal

Details of our proposed reduced programme, opening hours & Covid-19 safe guidelines can be found below.

What are we doing to make our centre Covid-19 safe? 

The Circle has taken many steps in order to make our facility Covid-19 safe both for our staff and you our valued customers. We have followed guidance issued from a number of governing bodies including, UK active, the Swimming Teacher Association, Badminton England & Swim England.

Our key aspects to follow when on site are;

  • All activities, including fitness suite sessions, must now be booked in advance (bookings can be completed 7 days in advance)
  • Follow social distancing measures (2m)
  • Do not use changing facilities
  • Arrive in clothing ready for your activity
  • Thoroughly wash your hands regularly
  • Bring your own equipment where possible (do not share equipment)
  • Use contactless payment rather than cash/cheque
  • Use hand sanitiser/wash stations wherever possible
  • Avoid physical contact with other participants
  • Stay hydrated by bringing your pre-filled water bottle

To ensure that we comply with current Covid-19 guidelines , staff will be following a strict cleaning and sanitising schedule, touchpoints around the site have been minimised, sessions in all areas have been programmed to minimise crossover of customers on site and deep cleaning has been programmed each evening after the centre is closed.

We have also invested in a fogging disinfectant machine to add a further level of cleaning to our facilities.

Centre Opening Hours & Reception Hours
