As a Leisure Trust, we would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year
2020 has been a difficult year for us all and we hope 2021 is better for everyone.
The Maidstone Leisure Trust has, since the initial lockdown in March, been in discussions with Maidstone Borough Council (MBC) and the Leisure Centre operators, Serco, to ensure the centres facilities have been made available to the public in accordance with government guidelines. Unfortunately, at present we in Maidstone are in Tier 4 so we cannot open the Leisure Centre for the time being.
We have also been holding discussions around securing support to mitigate the financial losses our facilities have been suffering. Throughout the year we, together with, Serco, have done everything we can to mitigate these losses, such as use of the furlough scheme for centre staff as well as various operational efficiencies all focused on cutting costs across our sites. Efficiency savings are ongoing and will continue until the Leisure Centre is able to open again.
