Warwick District Council and partners Everyone Active have been preparing for the safe reopening of the district’s leisure centres and swimming pools in the anticipation that government restrictions will be lifted in the next few weeks.
Since all indoor facilities were closed in March, Everyone Active who operate the district’s centres at Newbold Comyn, St Nicholas Park and Abbey Fields have been focusing their efforts on putting the necessary social distancing and extra cleaning and hygiene measures in place to make the facilities COVID-safe for all users once they are permitted to return.
Warwick District Council’s Portfolio Holder for Culture, Councillor Moira-Ann Grainger commented;
“Like many members and regular users of our much loved and popular facilities the Council and Everyone Active were extremely disappointed that the leisure centres and gyms were not included in government’s announcement that many hospitality venues and businesses can reopen from 4 July. However, we want to assure local people that as soon as we get the green light we are fully prepared to welcome all of our customers back with their health and safety remaining our top priority”
The severe financial impact of the ongoing closures, strict health and safety protocols and the furloughing of Everyone Active staff has forced the Council to make the decision not to open the outdoor pool at Abbey Fields for the remainder of the summer season.
Councillor Grainger added;
“We have made every effort to see if it would be feasible to open the outdoor pool, but with no set date from the government as to when we can reopen and the implementation of social distancing measures would not make the facility viable for such a short period. We would have normally begun preparing the outdoor pool in April but due to lock down this could not take place, as colleagues were on furlough. We will however be introducing measures to offer a revised programme in the three indoor pools and gyms across the district.”
Further updates on details of reopening will be posted on
Businesses in Warwick district impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic are being urged to apply for a discretionary business grant scheme to assist them as we move toward recovery and the gradual reopening of our town centres.
The Council has been allocated £1.7m from the Government to support a range of businesses, who weren’t eligible for the Small Business Grant or Retail, Hospitality and Leisure Grant which were available from April.
Businesses that have been impacted by the pandemic, ranging from those with large retail and hospitality premises to small and micro-businesses with fixed property costs, including sole traders that operate from home, are urged to check the full eligibility criteria on the Council’s website and apply today.
Councillor Richard Hales, Portfolio Holder for Business & Finance, said:
“We are very aware of the detrimental impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on so many of our local businesses. The Council’s Finance Team has worked tirelessly to ensure that those who are eligible receive this lifeline support. To date more than 92% of businesses qualifying for the government scheme have received £30.5m in grants.
“However, we know that a number of businesses have fallen through the net. It’s important to stress that this is a grant not a loan, so I would therefore urge businesses who may now be eligible to make an application and access the support which is now available to them.
“If you’re self-employed, a sole trader or freelancer that has fixed property costs and has been impacted by the pandemic, or a retail and hospitality business that has a rateable value lower than £65k, please get in touch to check the eligibility criteria and apply today.”

What's not like.
s we move slowly out of lockdown and our businesses and communities start to reopen, Warwick District Council is encouraging groups and individuals to plant a tree to help the climate and wildlife and as a sign of new beginnings following the COVID-19 pandemic.
‘Trees for our Future’ is part of the Council’s ongoing commitment to the environment, health and wellbeing and has a target of planting 160,000 trees, one for every resident living in our district.
Working in partnership with the Woodland Trust, Forestry Commission, Warwick Tree Wardens, Warwickshire Wildlife Trust, businesses, schools and community groups, the Council’s project team will be facilitating a number of schemes to encourage both small and large scale planting on Council and third party land; from private gardens and community spaces to multi-hectare sites, including the new Tach Brook Country Park and Newbold Comyn.
Warwick District Council’s newly appointed Programme Manager for Climate Change, Dave Barber commented;
The ‘Trees for our Future’ scheme is something that everyone in our community can get involved with. In the coming months we will be working with a number of national and local groups and organisations on a multi-pronged campaign to encourage and support a variety of tree planting projects. This will include identifying land, unlocking grants and funding or helping to supply free Woodland Trust tree packs to local schools and groups. We hope the scheme will provide an opportunity for people to play a part in improving the District’s environment and at the same time tackling the impacts of climate change.”
Warwickshire Wildlife Trust’s Chief Executive, Ed Green commented;
The planting of the right trees in the right places with the right care is one of the many ways which we need to respond to the climate and ecological crisis. We therefore welcome the commitment to a major programme of woodland creation in Warwick District brought about by tree planting and natural regeneration.
