from Telford & Wrekin Council

During these difficult and uncertain times,  it is our top priority to protect and care for all residents, visitors and employees in our borough.

 After careful consideration, we have decided to temporarily close the following Telford and Wrekin facilities from 5pm on Friday 20 March:

  • All Leisure Centres: Abraham Darby Sports & Leisure Centre, Horsehay Village Golf Centre, Newport Swimming Pool, Oakengates Leisure Centre, Phoenix Sports Centre, Stirchley Sports Centre, Wellington Civic & Leisure Centre
  • Telford Snowboard & Ski Centre
  • High Ropes, Disc & Adventure Golf at Telford Town Park
  • Telford Ice Rink
  • Libraries run by Telford & Wrekin Council at Madeley, Newport, Oakengates and Wellington as well as library facilities at Southwater One – we are also recommending that partners who run community library facilities in the borough also close.
  • Telford Town park visitor centre (the town park remains open)

These facilities will be closed until the end of May when we will review the decision.

We are also postponing the Council’s outdoor events programme until the end of May,  when we will review the decision.

These events include:

  • Spring into St George’s Day 19 April
  • VE Day celebrations 8 May
  • Telford Balloon Fiesta 9 & 10 May
