Rubicon Leisure putting its road map out there to reopen facilities

REDDITCH’S Rubicon Leisure has produced its own road map to re-opening its nine facilities in the town.

As the Government now permits people to meet socially and have a coffee or picnic with one other person, the popular outdoor refreshment kiosk at Arrow Valley Visitor Centre re-opened to the public on Monday, March 8.

Later this month, from March 29, Pitcheroak Golf course will re-open allowing up to four players per tee time.

Its manager Paul Hawkes said “We can’t wait to re-open and get back to some form of normality.

“We open the course just before the Easter weekend however tee time bookings are being taken now by calling the clubhouse on 01527 541054 between 9am and 12midday.

“Being one of the first physical activities to be able to open, we hope we see many of the new faces that became regular players last summer.

“Pitcheroak is the perfect course for beginners and with its relaxed approach is accessible to anyone and everyone.”

Also re-opening some facilities on March 29 is the Abbey Stadium.

Its manager Scott Brinkworth said: “We have a three-stage approach in line with the Government’s roadmap; firstly, we open outdoors on March 29 for the track and boot camp, the gym and pool will open on April 12 followed by group exercise classes on May 17.

“We have a real sense of community at our facilities and hope to see lots of happy faces visiting us very soon.”

Strict measures will be in all facilities to prevent the spread of Covid 19.

Rubicon hopes to re-open its other sites in the months ahead, including its community centres, a phased re-opening of Forge Mill Museum – check website for days and times – and the Palace Theatre.
