Derry City and Strabane District Council’s Leisure Services department are reminding the public that some of their services will be operating on reduced opening hours on certain days over the next week.

The partial closures are to accommodate mandatory staff training and will affect services at the Foyle Arena, Brandywell Stadium, City Baths, Templemore Sports Complex, Brooke Park Sports Centre and Bishops Field.

Head of Community Development and Leisure at Derry City and Strabane District Council, Barry O’Hagan, urged the public to familiarise themselves with the timetable for the planned closures to help minimise disruption.

“Our aim is to minimise inconvenience by carrying out these mandatory training sessions at our leisure facilities during our quietest time of the year for usage numbers and times of the day that are more likely to be quiet,” he explained.

“The full list of changed opening hours are available on Council’s Facebook page and can be viewed atwww.derrystrabane.com/leisure and I would encourage the public to familiarise themselves with the timetables so you can plan your leisure activities around the slight changes.

“We appreciate the public’s cooperation and the training sessions will allow us to continue to offer the highest level of service in 2019 and beyond.”

The Leisure Centre closures begin on December 11th 2018 at the Foyle Arena, Brandywell Stadium and City Baths, the sessions will be completed by December 19th and orning and evening sessions are largely unaffected,
