Leisure Link Partnership extends to Shetland

A partnership providing free use of leisure facilities across Scotland - including the Outer Hebrides - now includes access to multiple leisure facilities across the Shetland Islands.

The Leisure Link Partnership allows CnES card holders to access gym, public swimming and fitness classes at leisure centres across Aberdeen, Argyll and Bute, the Borders, Highland, Moray and Orkney - all at no extra cost.

As of 17th January Shetland Recreational Trust has joined the partnership adding eight new sites that can be utilised.

They are: Unst Leisure Centre, Yell Leisure Centre, North Mainland Leisure, Whalsay Leisure Centre, South Mainland Pool, Scalloway Pool, West Mainland Leisure, and Clickimin Leisure Complex.

Director of Education, Skills and Children's Services, William MacDonald said: "I am very pleased to welcome Shetland Recreational Trust to the partnership.

"This collaboration gives leisure members and their families even greater flexibility to use their leisure cards at various sites right across Scotland, and all at no extra cost."

Head of Operations and Business Support at Shetland Recreational Trust Robert Geddes said: "We're delighted to be able to offer our MORE4life members the opportunity to keep active at leisure facilities across the country.

"This flexibility means that people working away from home or on holiday can use local facilities from participating areas as part of their existing home-based membership."

Those making use of the scheme are asked to check directly with the site they are planning on visiting and whether advanced booking is necessary.

The Comhairle's membership card, provides admission to 4 sports centres offering a wide range of health and fitness opportunities from swimming to squash courts, climbing walls, fitness suites and exercise classes across the Outer Hebrides.
