Flooding Updates

New Update: 16:40 09/03/20

Monmouth Leisure Centre Update

Gym: Open
Spin Studio: Open
Toning Suite: Open
Aerobics Studio: Open
Play Centre: Open
Spa: Open
Cafe: Open
Pool: Our pool specialists are back on site and refitting the pool circulation pumps. This will now enable us to fill the final part of the pool up a little quicker, start chemical treatment of the water and heating it. We anticipate the pool being back open on Monday 16th March. If this changes at all we will keep you all posted.
Squash: We’ve had confirmation that the new floor to the squash courts will be laid, week commencing 16th March and will take roughly 4 days to complete.

It’s nearly time to welcome you all back. The team are excited and we’re looking forward to seeing everyone.

We are hoping to reopen the Spa on Monday evening and will confirmed this on Monday morning.

The play centre should be back open for Saturday 7th March. Further updates to follow during next week.

We are slightly behind on the pool as the pumps are still not back. Therefore, refilling is taking longer than expected. Further updates to follow next week.

Have a great weekend and thank you once again for you continued support

Update Monmouth Leisure Centre 27/02/2020

Staff are excited to be reopening the first floor of the centre and reception on Friday 28th February as planned. Cleaning has continued throughout the building with a number of areas signed off and locked ready for reopening when required.

The filling of the pool continues, this takes a little longer than your paddling pool in the garden – around 3-4 days!

Carpet on the ground floor has been re-laid and staff are eagerly setting up the reception area ready to serve.

Our squash court specialists have inspected the courts and confirmed that other than the floor there is no further damaged. We are awaiting confirmation for the new floor to be laid.

Who’s coming to see us tomorrow night?

Monmouth Leisure Centre Update 26/02/2020

As stated in the previous update we will be opening the first floor this Friday at 5pm.  This includes access to the gym, toning suite, spin studio and aerobics studio with all classes being back to normal.

We are working with contractors on the play area and swimming pool and will update you as soon as we have more information.  The Spa will be open next week and will update you on this over the next few days.  The Beauty room will be back open from Wednesday next week for treatments.

Thank you for your support

Staff and contractors have continued to work hard over the past few days to ensure that the centre reopens as soon as possible.

We are pleased to announce that the first floor which includes the gym, toning suite, class studio and spin studio will reopen on Friday 28th February from 5pm with classes running as normal.

The sports hall remains open as normal in the evenings.

The play centre, squash courts spa and swimming pool will remain closed. We have a number of contractors due out over the next few days and following these visits we hope to have some further updates.

Thank you once again for your patience.

Staff have been working tirelessly over the weekend to get Monmouth Leisure Centre open as soon as possible, we have contractors on site this week and will hopefully get a more detailed update tomorrow on timescales for the first floor area being accessed.  The swimming pool, squash courts and soft play area will take longer and we will endeavour to update you on this progress as soon as we have more information.  Again thank you for your support and patience at this time.

The water levels have now dropped and we have been able to assess the full building which has resulted in damage to the fixtures and fittings.

We are currently in the process of meeting with suppliers, drying the building, disposing of items lost, arranging replacements and initiating deep cleaning throughout.

Our first priority is to get safe access to the first floor (Gym, toning, spin and studio) so that our members can access these unaffected areas. To ensure the safety of our customers and staff we will be replacing the flooring in the corridor and reception area and carrying out a thorough deep clean.

The swimming pool, spa, squash courts, beauty rooms and play centre will remain closed and we will provide a further update on this next week.

The sports hall will be open as normal from Monday night and staff will be on hand to deal with those bookings at the sports hall.

During this difficult time we would like to thank our staff who have not only assisted with the Emergency Rest Centre at Shire Hall but many have also been sent across the county to other facilities to work from at short notice.

We also would like to thank all our users for their kind comments of support and patience during this challenging time.

Please be advised that due to flood water still covering the ground floor Monmouth Leisure Centre remains closed. 

We will endeavour to re-open your Leisure Centre as soon as it is safe to do so but at the moment until the water has cleared we are unable to assess the damage and therefore unable to give a specific date.

We would also like to remind you that you can access the other 3 MonLife Leisure Centres at Chepstow, Caldicot and Abergavenny.  For further information on these facilities visit www.monlife.co.uk

Please follow our Monmouth Leisure Centre facebook pages for regular updates.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your patience and support at this time.
