It is good to hear that Littleport’s popular parkrunning is still continuing but in a different format to the usual large group turnout, with smaller groups of running buddies.

These events have all been run under the government guidelines…

Littleport Leisure: Update from Manager Debra Jordan

Greetings and warm wishes from Littleport Leisure. We have missed you all! As you know, weeks before the lockdown, we had instigated hand cleaning stations, further cleaning of soft play and equipment, plus a complete overhaul of our cleaning practices to disable this horrible germ.
