Statement from CEO of Torfaen Leisure Trust

Angharad Collins, CEO of Torfaen Leisure Trust has issued a statement following today’s announcement by Welsh Government:
I write with a heavy heart every time I have to communicate with you regarding the COVID pandemic and tonight I write to you with confirmation of our third closure. Our doors will close at end of business on 23rd December and we will ensure that our teams are home safe for Christmas Eve. It has been the most challenging year for our teams and we have Mum’s, Dads and Guardians who will need to spend time with excited children for the arrival of Santa (I understand he has a full travel pass from the First Minister and will be able to visit all homes)
The reality that we are currently facing is that COVID numbers are rising and whilst Welsh Government know that we are safe and value our services, this is now a public health crisis and everything possible has to be done to slow the spread of this awful virus.
Whilst I write, I have to commend my Torfaen Leisure Trust colleagues who have worked tirelessly throughout this pandemic and as a Chief Executive, I could not be any prouder of the team and their resilience, motivation, care and compassion that they have shown everyone. They have truly been exceptional and Team TLT, I am grateful for your ongoing support.
This closure is for an indefinite period. We are relying upon every one of our customers to follow the guidance and ensure that you do everything possible to enable us to return to the sports and facilities that we love. This is a collective effort and we urge you to help our friends in health who are already struggling with rising cases.
As a Company, as we have done twice before, we will be ready to reopen our doors as soon as we are advised it is safe to do so.
Torfaen Leisure Trust will not be calling the Direct Debits in January for your memberships and we will update you with any further information as soon as we have it.
Please stay safe. Take care of each other and have a peaceful and safe Christmas.
Nadolig Llawen from myself and all the team at TLT
