Covid-19: Call for free gym access for young people in Wales

Young people in Wales should be given free access to gyms and leisure centres, according to proposals being put forward by the Welsh Conservatives.

They have called for measures to boost participation in sport with Covid having a detrimental impact “at all levels”.

Gyms, leisure centres and fitness facilities in Wales were forced to close for much of the pandemic, but have been allowed to reopen since 3 May.

The Welsh Conservatives spokesperson for sport, Tom Giffard, says many now needed help to recover.

He said it was “vital” to get “young and old back on the sporting fields and facilities of Wales”.

Tory Senedd members have triggered a vote on the subject later this afternoon, although it is not binding on Wales’ ministers.
