  • The booking system will remain in place for Fitness Classes, Members can still book up to 5 days in advance, Non-Members can book up to 24 hours in advance.  The class numbers will be increased.
  • The Government recommends that people wear face coverings in crowded areas.  Though not mandatory we also recommend the wearing of face coverings to and from your activity @ The Junction.
  • Social distancing rules will be removed but we must limit the close contact we have with those we do not usually live with, close contact should be increased gradually.  The one-way system for entry to the gym will remain in place.
  • Hand sanitizer will be available around the Centre.
  • Anti-bacterial sprays will be available in all rooms.  Please still continue to wipe the gymnasium/fitness equipment down, before and after use.
  • We ask that you will use the Check-In QR code upon entry to the Centre.
  • Party numbers will increase, bookings will be contacted in due course.
  • Booking systems will remain in place for Bouncy Castle World sessions and Kidz Kingdom soft play area.

COVID-19 has not gone away, we do all need to remember the actions we can take to keep ourselves and others safe and well.
