"The decision has been taken in line with guidance from Public Health England to suspend all group based activities within our sports centres, the Healthy Living Centre, Staveley and Queen's Park Sports Centre, Chesterfield. These activities are those where by people are encouraged to come together and take part in physical activity.

Such activities are as follow:,
