Minister for Sport visits Gibraltar Sport and Leisure Authority’s Stay and Play programme

The Minister for Sport, Steven Linares, this week visited the Gibraltar Sport and Leisure Authority’s Stay and Play programme, which this year has had to be adapted because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Minister Linares said he was very happy with what he witnessed first-hand, adding the improvements that have come about will now mean that serious consideration will need to be given to making the current interim model the permanent strategy for the future of the Stay and Play programme. He said the feedback from leaders, GSLA management and parents/guardians have all been of a positive and constructive nature. 

He thanked the GSLA, Leaders, volunteers and all those who have made this programme a unique success within the context of the difficult times that we are currently experiencing.

The programme continues until the 26th August and is currently being held at the Bayside Sports Complex Boathouse Activity Centre, the GSLA Accessible Pool, King’s Bastion Leisure Centre and the Alameda Gardens respectively.
