Rejected petition Allow Gyms and Leisure Centres to reopen on the 12th of April like England. (Scotland end of April.)
Gyms and Leisure Centres have been closed like non essential businesses since the end of December 2020. It’s beyond shocking how in every review we seem to be ignored and not even debated about! Elenud Morgan said only a month ago that gyms were a priority to reopen when restrictions needed to be eased, and that the welsh government were “reluctant to close them”. In my eyes, we are now a forgotten sector.
Gyms and Leisure Centres are essential to health and well-being so let us reopen!!
Why was this petition rejected?
There’s already a petition about this issue. We cannot accept a new petition when we already have one about a very similar issue, or if the Petitions Committee has considered one in the last year.
Another petition calling for this is already collecting signatures:
Re-open gyms in Wales to allow people to work on their physical and mental health https://petitions.senedd.wales/petitions/244770
You are more likely to get action on this issue if you sign and share a single petition.
We only reject petitions that don’t meet the petition standards
