CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19): Latest Updates & FAQ's

OUTDOOR EVENTS UPDATE - 10 JUNE

 

We have taken the decision not to host large outdoor events in 2021 but will assist organisers to plan for next year. This means that the Cumbernauld 10k, Nite Lite and Santa Dash events will be cancelled this year. 

The safety of all participants, staff and everyone involved in these events is paramount and taking into account this and the current uncertainty around Covid-19, we have decided to postpone these events until 2022.

 

An automatic refund will be provided in the coming weeks for anyone who has already paid for their entry or has had their entry deferred due to the events being postponed last year.

 

We are currently in level 2 restrictions and although we anticipate moving to Level 0 at some point in the future, we are aware that Covid-19 is still very much with us and in line with government guidance, we are continuing to take a cautious approach to events that attract large crowds.

 

Although government guidance is currently being reviewed and updated for outdoor events, planning for this type of large scale event would need to have been well underway and as a result it will not be feasible to run these events this year. 

 

We understand that this will be disappointing for a number of people and we apologise for any inconvenience but the safety of everyone involved is of the utmost importance.

We do look forward to planning a number of great events in 2022 for everyone to enjoy. 

Thank you for your understanding and continued support.

BROADWOOD UPDATE - 28 OCTOBER
 
On the advice of Track and Trace, following a staff member at Broadwood testing positive for COVID-19, we are taking the precautionary measure to close the full Broadwood campus with immediate effect in order to carry out a comprehensive deep clean of the full venue.
 
As a result, no further activity sessions of any kind will take place within the Broadwood campus for the remainer of the day.
It is essential that the full campus is closed in order to carry out our robust deep cleaning procedures in line with our health and safety measures.
Normal service will resume at the venue from tomorrow morning following the safety measures and deep clean.
 
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Culture and Leisure NL – Latest Information

After several months of closure, Culture and Leisure NL is pleased to announce a number of services and facilities are re-opening to the public. 

These will open on a phased basis, with reduced hours and reduced capacity, to help make our facilities as safe and secure for the public and staff as much as possible. 

 

Summerlee Museum of Scottish Industrial Life, opened to the public on Wednesday 26 August and North Lanarkshire Heritage Centre is due to open later this month. Libraries are opening in a phased approach with Coatbridge and Cumbernauld libraries already open from 31 August and Airdrie library following from 7 September. Other libraries across North Lanarkshire will re-open over the coming weeks.

 

As of 14 September, six of our indoor sports/leisure facilities will re-open and these are Tryst, Broadwood, Ravenscraig, Time Capsule, Airdrie and Wishaw. 

Similar to libraries, the leisure service recovery will follow a phased approach as we have been busy implementing health and safety measures and planning how our operational procedures will work. This, however, is a complex task, with restrictions implemented and capacity reduced. Our venues will look different on re-opening, and how customers access and use our facilities will be a different experience from before. 

More information for gyms, pools and fitness studios can be found on in the update below. For any general enquires regarding these services please call 01236 341969 or email accessnl@nlleisure.com

A full update on all of the new gym and fitness class safety and booking procedures can be found here - https://bit.ly/2Z5RzIY

Monday to Thursday - 8am - 7pm

Friday - 8am - 4pm 

You can also email - accessnl@nlleisure.com 

 

Our priority has been for the safety of pupils and staff in schools and we are now working towards the safe recovery of school and pitch lettings with further detail to follow. Like sports/leisure centres, pitch and school recovery must comply with health and safety regulations, with restrictions put in place as required.

 

Culture and Leisure NL and North Lanarkshire Council have both faced significant financial challenges over the last few years, however the impact of coronavirus (COVID-19) has had an immediate and direct impact on culture and leisure operations in terms of lost income. This means that we are not yet in the position to start back all of our services, venues and facilities and when considering the future, some tough decisions will need to be made about the viability of some of them.

 

Thank you for your continued patience. We have uploaded specific guidance for visiting our venues and facilities on our websites and we ask that customers read this so they are aware of changes and know what to expect when attending. Please maintain physical distancing and wear a mask or face covering where appropriate within indoor areas. 

 

We will keep customers updated on further re-opening plans however please keep checking our websites and social media channels for more detailed information on what services are available, and which venues are open in line with our agreed recovery plan, developed in conjunction with North Lanarkshire Council.

Updated Covid-19 Statement - 15 July 2020.

FOOTBALL UPDATE

Culture and Leisure NL welcomes the Scottish Government update on Thursday 9th July and since then the SFA’s latest guidance released on the 10th of July. 

We are urgently assessing what these changes mean for our facilities re-opening for football. During the lockdown phases our 3g football pitches experienced high levels of misuse and vandalism and works to prepare our 3g pitches to ensure they are safe and fit for purpose will need to be completed prior to opening for public use. 

We want to thank everyone for their continued patience and support and we will continue to put the safety of the public and our staff at the forefront of any decisions we take and we will communicate what we expect will be a phased approach to the reopening of our facilities and venues as soon as we can.

Within its route-map, the government has outlined Phase Three as the period when some more of the culture, sport and leisure services may begin to be re-open more fully. In line with this, Culture and Leisure NL’s focus now is on planning for the safe and responsible re-opening of some of these facilities and venues during this phase.  

As it has always been during this crisis, protecting our staff and customers remains our priority, and we’re continuing to be led by the government’s guidance to ensure safety is firmly at the heart of our plans.

Covid-19 Statement - 6 July 2020.

In line with continuing Scottish Government advice on maintaining physical distancing and its phased approach to the easing of lockdown restrictions, a number of Culture and Leisure facilities in North Lanarkshire will remain closed until further notice.

The closure applies to:

  • All community centres and school letting
  • All libraries, including mobile services
  • All Museums, including Summerlee Museum of Scottish Industrial Life and North Lanarkshire Heritage Centre
  • All sports and leisure facilities, including gyms, swimming pools and football pitches with the exception of the two golf courses, driving range and outdoor tennis facilities. 
  • Motherwell Concert Hall and Theatre, Airdrie Town Hall and Bellshill Cultural Centre
  • Community arts and sports development activities
  • Cafes at North Lanarkshire’s country parks

With this commitment, delivering our services in a ‘Covid Secure’ environment will have a significant impact on our operations to the extent that the constraints we’re now facing will restrict our ability to operate at pre-lockdown levels.

While the government’s Job Retention Scheme will hopefully provide some financial relief, it will not compensate fully for the significant costs we’re anticipating this financial year meaning we will now have to review and prioritise which venues and services we can restart or reopen and when. 

We are working in partnership with North Lanarkshire Council to agree this recovery plan.

Please be assured, we will continue to put the safety of the public and our staff at the forefront of any decisions we take and we will share more details about our phased approach to the reopening of our services and venues when we are confident we have plans that meet the needs of everyone.

We’ll continue to keep this page up-to-date in line with government advice and our agreed recovery plans with the council, so please check in regularly for updates. You can also follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for our latest updates.
