Everyone Active - which runs Scarborough Sports Village and Pindar Leisure Centre in Eastfield as well as Ryedale Swim and Fitness Centre, Ryedale Sports Centre and Whitby Leisure Centre - says extra steps are being taken to help people keep active.

"We are taking the coronavirus very seriously and have increased our cleaning regime across our facilities, in line with the latest guidance from Public Health England," said the firm.

"We also ask that customers support us in doing so, by using the anti-bacterial sprays and paper towels in gym areas to wipe down equipment before and after use. This will allow us to continue to provide a clean environment for all.
