After a careful review of Scottish Government, sportscotland and governing bodies of sport guidance, as well as current facility usage figures, the following facilities and activities will continue to be affected:

KGS Sport Centre:

  • Facility opening hours will continue to be 25 hours per week as per the new timetable published.
