Impact of lockdown on services

The council’s Live Life Aberdeenshire facilities remain closed and most services are suspended until at least 31 January.

All sports and leisure facilities and cultural venues across Aberdeenshire will remain closed until then.

Outdoor ski centres at Huntly and Alford, which had continued to operate over the festive period during Level 4 restrictions will close at the end of business today (7 January). Customers with bookings are being contacted directly regarding cancellations.

Lets of community facilities and sports halls will also be suspended, other than where permitted by government guidance.

Click and Collect and home delivery library services will not be able to operate for the time being.

Active Schools programmes are also suspended – contact your local Active Schools coordinator for further details.

Health walks from Live Life Aberdeenshire facilities and under the responsibility of Live Life Aberdeenshire will also cease to operate for the time being.

Payments already made by customers will be honoured when facilities begin operating again and affected fitness passes will be extended to reflect the unavailability of facilities.

Anyone who would like to request a refund should contact the customer helpline on 01467 532929 (8am till 8pm, Monday to Sunday). Alternatively, email
