The Next Steps – Opening More Centres

Gwynedd Council

Thank you very much to all of you who have so far unfrozen their membership, booked a session or visited the Arfon, Penllyn and Glaslyn centres.

It has been really nice to welcome you back!

Our Swimming Pools at Arfon and Glaslyn will open to the public on the 21st of September. Our first step will be lane swimming and family sessions in the pools. More info will follow for public swim session.

Unfortunately we can’t confirm a date to open our swimming pool at Penllyn because of maintenance on the ventilation system. We hope to reopen the swimming pool during October, but we will confirm the exact date with you closer to the time.

Many of you are very keen to see more centres open and more activities available. We are working very hard to make that to happen. Our staff have been receiving the necessary training and a lot of work has been done to adapt our buildings to make them safe for you to return.

We plan to open the following centres by 21 September 2020:

  • Byw’n Iach Plas Ffrancon, Bethesda
  • Byw’n Iach Bangor
  • Byw’n Iach Plas Silyn, Penygroes
  • Byw’n Iach Dwyfor, Pwllheli (dry facilities only)
  • Byw’n Iach Glan Wnion, Dolgellau
  • Byw’n Iach Y Pafiliwn, Barmouth

And this centre on the 5th of October 2020:

  • Byw’n Iach Bro Dysynni (this has had to be postponed unfortunately because of maintenance work)

Unfortunately, technical problems mean that there will be further delays in opening the Bro Ffestiniog centre and Dwyfor Swimming Pool. Once there is a timetable for reopening these facilities we will update you.

We plan to offer the following services at all relevant centres when they open:

  • Fitness Rooms
  • Fitness Classes
  • Synthetic Fields/Pitches available and Sport Halls to clubs and formal organisations
  • Swimming for clubs and individuals
  • Racket Sports

There will, of course, be changes in how you use the centres e.g. the need to book in advance, very limited use of changing facilities etc. We will provide detailed information on our website on how the centres will work and what services will be available at each site.

Members will need to register to start attending again, we will be opening registration at the 4th of September 2020.

New customers will be able to join the centres when we re open.

If you do not feel ready to return at this time, your package will remain frozen, you do not need to do anything.

Please get in touch if you have any questions. We will be very happy to try and help.
