It will reopen for business with its usual operating hours of Monday to Friday from 8am to 8pm and Saturdays from 9am to 1pm from Wednesday, January 2.

The centres will be operating during normal winter opening times - Monday to Friday from 8am to 4.30pm and Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 4.30pm.

This is, with the exception of Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day, when they will be closed.
