THE buildings may be shut. But Warrington's libraries and leisure centres are still very much open for business online.

LiveWire, which runs the services in the town, has come up with a way for users to stay active and healthy, while at home during the coronavirus shutdown.

The company has recorded and uploaded a number of workout videos that can be followed at home, and has livestreamed a number of classes – including ones from home.

A spokesperson for LiveWire said: “Our doors maybe shut, but our staff are still here, and ready to do our best to help you and your families keep fit and well – mentally and physically.

“Keeping our brains and bodies active in whatever ways we can has never been more important, as we try to adjust to our new normal.

“As such we are working very hard to bring you as much virtual options as possible – that you can access from the safety and comfort of your own homes.

“From workouts to mindfulness, E-Books to craft ideas, we have worked really hard over the past week putting together lots of exciting things for you to try virtually.

“We hope our customers find these things useful, and show how we are dedicated to doing all we can to help people stay well during the time our doors our closed. We are still very much here for Warrington.”
