Over the summer residents contacted us about the delay in re-opening leisure facilities in Hounslow. We approached Hounslow Council and wrote to Fusion about the unacceptable delays being experienced. It was clear that something needed to happen, and I supported the Council taking back control of our leisure centres to improve the service for residents.

I wanted to update residents on the latest information received from Hounslow Council for the community which I hope will be helpful, and look forward to our leisure centres being re-opened as soon as possible:

“We are delighted that the transfer of our leisure centres took place as planned, on 1 November 2020, and the assets have now been transferred to us from Fusion Lifestyle.”
“This means that the management of the leisure centres is now with Lampton Leisure, but it does not mean that we are able to welcome you back into our buildings straight away.”

“We will now carry out our due diligence and follow a stringent operational process to work towards reopening, making sure we have everything ready and the buildings have been checked and made covid-secure.”

“This will take varying amounts of time depending on each specific building and the facilities and services it offers, and as a result we are planning a phased approach towards reopening the buildings and the services available at each one.”

“Given that we are now in a period of more stringent measures set by the Government to slow the spread of coronavirus we will not be able to reopen any of our facilities until at least early December, and team sports will also not be allowed. However, our parks and open spaces, children’s playgrounds and outdoor gyms are currently able to remain open and we encourage residents to make the most of the outdoor facilities available for exercise and wellbeing providing Government guidelines are adhered to.”

“We will provide regularly updated information on our website, through newsletters and through social media and other publicity.”

“If there are questions that are not answered on our website or our frequently asked questions, we can be contacted at leisure@hounslow.gov.uk and we will reply.”

“We thank our residents for their ongoing patience, we realise it has been a difficult time as the centres have been closed since March, but we are doing everything we can to reopen again as quickly and as safely as possible, once the Government allows this, and look forward to welcoming customers back soon.”
