We wanted to reassure you that we have already started looking at how we can re-open the Baths in the safest way possible, with the safety and well-being of our staff and customers our priority.
To give you an idea of some of the plans we already have lined up, we will be looking at the following:
· Extra hand sanitizer stations.
· New booking system.
· Reduced capacity in pool, gym and classes
· Phased re-opening of certain aspects of the business in line with Government and industry bodies such as Community Leisure & Swim England.
· Enhanced cleaning schedule.
· New social distancing signage and floor stickers.
· Revised class timetable, maximum numbers and booking system.
· Online classes.
· Covid-19 specific staff training prior to re-opening.
· Covid-19 specific risk assessment carried out.
· Increased PPE, cleaning products and safety measures for staff.
· And more …
We’re acutely aware that people will have concerns but we will be doing all we can as a community baths to do our best to keep staff and customers safe. However, we completely understand that some people may not yet feel comfortable going back into a gym/class/swimming environment and we will continue to listen to you so that we can continue to improve our systems.
Obviously, we will not be re-opening for some time yet but we wanted to reassure you that we are already looking at setting up appropriate systems for when we can re-open in the safest manner possible, and we will continue to keep you updated in the coming weeks.
We will be receiving safety guidelines from Swim England next week and the Government has indicated it may look at re-opening leisure facilities from early July. We will only re-open when we feel we have the right measures in place for both customers and staff.
Just a reminder, to support our re-opening and beyond, you can become a Friend of Bramley Baths for the price of a swim, steam, gym or class each month.

Finally, we would just like to thank everyone for their kind words and support at this very difficult time for everyone. All we ask is that you all keep yourselves safe and well as we are looking forward to welcoming you all back to our wonderful community facility at some point in the future.
