Carmarthen & Llanelli Leisure Centre Field Hospitals to close and return to its primary use

Two temporary field hospitals set up in response to the COVID-19 pandemic in Carmarthenshire are to be returned to the local authroity following the end of its contract with the health board.

Hywel Dda University Health Board will hand back Ysbyty Enfys Llanelli and Ysbyty Enfys Caerfyrddin to Carmarthenshire County Council, with the latter being partially mothballed so that beds can be retained in case of a second surge.

It means work will shortly get underway to repurpose the venues back to their original use as two of the council's largest leisure centres.

It is planned that leisure facilities at Carmarthen and Llanelli will begin a phased reopening to the public for October - specific details will be communicated directly to members and further information will be communicated via Actif Sport and Leisure website and social media platforms in the coming weeks.

Improvement works to the car park, tennis courts and athletics track have resumed in Carmarthen and it is planned that these works will also be completed for an October re-opening date.

For Actif Sport and Leisure members who have not yet re-started their memberships to use facilities at Amman Valley, Newcastle Emlyn, St Clears or Llandovery centres, memberships will continue to be frozen and Actif will communicate with any proposed changes with regards to this. Also, prices have been reduced at the moment to £30 for Household Membership and £20 for Individual Memberships.
