THE PEAK will reopen next week in line with the easing of government restrictions.

The Stirling facility is due to reopen on Monday, April 26, when Scotland takes another step closer to normality.

Active Stirling, who manage The Peak on behalf of Stirling Council, are preparing to restart gym, swim and climbing activities once more with a number of Covid-19 measures in place.

All activities will be on a pre booked basis as The Peak still won't be a walk-in facility, with bookings opening at last on Monday, April 19.

Andrew Bain, chief executive at Active Stirling, said "As we move to restart activities and programmes, we'd like to thank customers for their patience and understanding during this time.

"As you can imagine, it takes considerable planning to start activities once more and make sure they are fully tested and certified by our Covid officer before they restart.

"We aim to restart activities in line with government guidance, but we must also take each decision to do so carefully, to make sure that we can recover as much as possible financially from the damaging impacts that Covid-19 has had on our charity."

The Peak will be closed on May 7 and 8 as the facility is being used as a counting venue for upcoming elections.

Following the election count the ice rink and sports hall will then be prepped ready for opening.

The sports hall will reopen from Monday, May 17, with indoor fitness classes set to return, along with adult outdoor contact sport.
