The first day was fully booked with many familiar faces back at the facility. To make sure the reopening was as safe as possible, there has been a change to the layout and operations of the arena to ensure social distancing is maintained. Information on these measures can be found at: https://www.everyoneactive.com/reopeningmeasures/
A booking system has also been introduced which requires both gym and skating customers to book a session prior to attending, so the number of people in these areas at one time can be managed. You can book a session using the Everyone Active app. Information about how to use the app, and a step-by-step guide on how to make a booking can be found at: https://www.everyoneactive.com/mobile-app/
For customers on the learn to skate programme, a timescale is currently being worked on for lessons to resume, and customers will be contacted directly once a date has been decided.
Alison Hibbert, Leisure Services Manager, Slough Borough Council said: “It’s great to be able to welcome the public back to the Ice Arena. Our teams have been working hard behind the scenes to make sure that all possible procedures are in place to ensure the safety of customers and colleagues. This is a much loved and very popular facility and it’s been fantastic to see people back getting active both in the gym and on the ice.”
