– All facilities, indoor and outdoor, remain closed to the public. All bookings in any Township facility scheduled during the months of April and May are cancelled. If you have a booking, staff will be in contact with you over the next couple of days. Bookings for the month of June in Township facilities are at risk of being cancelled. A decision regarding this will be made at the end of April.
