We re-opened the venue on the 4th of May 2021 and now offer 17 1 hour sessions per week. Theses are run very similarly to our last re-opening in 2020. We adhere strictly to covid 19 guidelines with social distancing, hand sanitising and equipment cleaning carried out by the member after individual usage. The use of masks is encouraged particularly in transit although not a requirement during exercise.

The sessions are run on a pre-booked basis with restricted attendances, however the numbers have been adjusted upwards to a maximum of 15 persons. All new attendees will complete a new membership form to enable our records to be updated accordingly. We will continue to monitor the covid situation and demand for the venue and react accordingly.

Original update as at 26 May 2020
Coronavirus and the reopening of the Barnsley Healthy Hearts gym.

The Trustees and Committee have been monitoring the current situation and when it might be possible to re-open our facilities.

We understand from the NHS cardiac rehab teams that it may be possible to re-open safely around the first or second week in July. We also need to take heed of the yet to be published, government advice on the re-opening of gyms. Early July is not definite, just a date that could be worked towards. However, if we are to open, it would only be a partial re-opening with limited attendees at any one time. Stringent safety measures will be needed to protect our members and volunteers.

This would entail use of PPE and sanitation points around the gym. Additionally to help maintain social distancing, we would need to reduce the amount of people using the equipment at any one time. Bearing in mind the underlying health issues of many of our members, we would initially consider a maximum of 10 people per session as being safe. Our previous “drop in” at any time during a morning or afternoon session will not be possible and we would need to operate some kind of pre-booking system and time limit on use of equipment.

Unfortunately there could be no socialising in the tea/coffee area.

As you can imagine this will take some organising and managing. In the first instance we need to organise a staggered booking system.

We are keen to re-open the gym and enable members to exercise in a safe environment. Please bear with us as we try to work out the best way of managing this.

Thank you for your patience,
Steve Plunkett,
Chairman
