The new sports facilities app is proving to be very popular.

The brand new app, available by searching ‘CnES – Sport Facilities’ on Google Play or the Apple App Store can be downloaded for free to your phone.

Customers can book activities directly from the app, as well as find out all the latest reopening information as it happens.

Tony Wade, Sports Facilities Services Manager said: “It has been great to see such an uptake in use of the app in the first week. The app will mean we can keep all our customers up to date with facility news in real time, direct to their phone.

“All customers will need to do is enable ‘push notifications’ and they will get all our latest news, straight away.”

He added: “Each of our sports facilities is different, this gives us a range of challenges in reopening facilities.

“The app will be a great way of keeping customers informed quickly and helping us give customers information that is only relevant to their local sports centre.”

The App currently covers Ionad Spòrs Leòdhais but each of the other three Comhairle sports facilities – Harris Sports Centre, Liniclate Sports Centre and Castlebay Sports Centre – will have a section added in the coming days.

Further information on this will be posted to the Comhairle website and social media channels.
