Making a splash once again in Alicante’s Aspe.

THE lifting of sanitary restrictions has made it possible to restart water and sports activities suspended by the pandemic in Aspe.

With the new recommendations by the Conselleria de Sanidad Universal y Salud Pública, which agrees measures in the field of public health and in the field of sport, the Council is relaunching a programme of leisure and sports activities.


“From this week the active rejuvenation and aquagym sessions for the elderly are being resumed, as well as the swimming courses at the Tomás Martínez Urios Municipal Pool,” said the council, adding that “these were the last activities paralysed due to the pandemic”.

The Department of Sports has assured it will compensate people who had enrolled for classes they were unable to attend in the first quarter of the year, and will extend the courses so that they can still take part.

In addition to reactivating almost all sports activities, other measures that currently exist will also be moderated, such as the use of changing rooms and showers and the public attendance at sports competitions, among others.

In other news, Aspe has recently stepped up security in schools following a spate of vandalism.

Schools and educational facilities in Aspe have been targeted by vandals in recent weeks, with windows and doors smashed and outdoor areas trashed.

Security and surveillance has now been increased “to avoid the damage being caused and also to intercept the people who are carrying out the acts of vandalism,” said the council.
