A Magna Vitae spokesman said: “At last, we are now looking forward to welcoming our custom back in a phased and controlled manner.

“We cannot wait to see you all again but, our re-opening plans remain focused on the safety of our staff and our customers.

“Our small team of dedicated staff have worked incredibly hard in the last few weeks to ensure that our facilities have been thoroughly cleaned, disinfected, sanitised and now COVID secure; hopefully providing you with the confidence to return as soon as possible.

“In the last few weeks our staff team has worked tirelessly to attempt to open our swimming pools sooner than we had originally anticipated.”
