As the National Lockdown comes to an end and we enter the Central Government Tiered system one of the measures that was due to be relaxed was the reopening of gyms (allowed in all tiers) yet Gateshead Council have gone completely against Government guidance and decided to keep their leisure centres and facilities closed.  They cite that the staff have all been redeployed into other critical roles but, we see no evidence of this and it is more likely that the staff all remain furloughed.  Gyms and Leisure Centres are a critical part of many peoples lives, regular exercise is proven to assist and maintain both mental and physical health.  Gateshead Council has a duty of care to residents and must provide the services that are required and reopening the leisure facilities would be a positive step.
