Active Scilly is the name of the leisure service run by the Council of the Isles of Scilly. We run a Sports Hall (shared with Five Islands Academy) and a fully equipped fitness centre (gym), both based at Carn Gwaval Wellbeing Centre in Old Town.

We also run Normandy Pool, a 14m indoor pool on the road between Porth Hellick and Pelistry. We run a range of fitness classes every week such as spin, circuits and aquafit.
