We sincerely hope this update finds you, your family and close-ones, safe and well.

From the Government’s update on 23rd June 2020 which outlined the businesses/activities permitted to re-open,
The Junction Sports & Leisure Centre unfortunately remains fully closed.

We await further Government announcements, which we hope and expect them to then give us the opportunity to re-open in a safe manner for all.

Do enjoy the Sunshine…and do please stay alert and safe.
