Swim School will also resume on 14 September. Parents/carers will receive information on swimming lessons via email w/c 31 August. If you don't receive any communication please email:

Following the announcement by the Government on Wednesday 9th September to impose tighter restrictions on social gatherings in England from Monday 14th September, we can confirm that these will not apply to the operation of our leisure facilities at Wymondham, Long Stratton, Diss, Framingham Earl and Kett’s Park and our customers can continue to use all of them as they do at the moment. This is because we have stringent plans in place to reduce the risk if Covid-19 and because our facilities are classed as Covid-secure given the measures we have introduced, . The importance of sport and physical activity to people’s physical health and mental wellbeing has also been recognised by the Government. We have had our Covid-19 operating procedures independently assessed by health and safety specialists who praised the steps that we have taken to keep our customers and staff safe.

Sport England’s Covid-19 guidance can be found here and we have also produced a number of videos that demonstrate the measures that we have introduced at our centres, which can be found on South Norfolk Leisure’s YouTube channel.

We remain committed to ensuring that you are able to stay active with confidence with us, and we look forward to welcoming our customers back into our centres;

we are ready when you are.
