To All Members/Users of The Junction

I/we sincerely hope you, your family, your colleagues and close-ones are safe and well and that you may be enjoying in some way this glorious weather that has coincided with these strange times.   The Junction is missing our most important element …YOU!

The Junction, which is managed by YMCA Bournemouth, Poole & Christchurch is busy preparing itself for re-opening whenever that may be. In the meantime our best wishes and our thoughts are with our YMCA work colleagues who are still delivering/supporting across Bournemouth/Poole, in their normal professional/passionate and caring manner. This includes frontline invaluable services to our adult residents across four locations, vital counselling services as well as through our local community Children’s Centres.  These have been, and continue to be, worrying and problematic times, but our YMCA Team are committed and focused individuals and I am personally extremely proud to be able to call them colleagues.

More details of the work your local YMCA delivers can be found at www.ymcabournemouth.org.uk, do take a look, I think you’ll be surprised.

REMINDER – ALL Membership subsciptions/DD’s/Upfront payments are suspended until further notice.

Of course donations are very much needed to help YMCA continue to deliver these local services, especially with normal YMCA income support suspended, all donations would be extremely welcomed, and greatly appreciated and can be made via

Please look after yourself, please look after others…The Junction looks forward to getting its heart back.

The Junction Sports & Leisure Centre is a YMCA managed facility. We will continue to focus on and communicate with our service users/members via all platforms.

Our invaluable employees will be fully supported, and we will as Management look to help our local communities in any way we can. The Junction facility has so many truly dedicated staff/users and members … keep following our Social Media posts and our Website for news/updates … and most importantly STAY SAFE.

Membership Information: 

Direct Debit Payments:
Suspended with immediate effect. They will re-commence once permission is forthcoming from the Government that Leisure Centres/Gymnasiums can re-open. 

Upfront Payments:
Suspended with immediate effect. All missed days/weeks/months will be transferred to the end of the contracted upfront period, when permission has been received to re-open. 

YMCA Donation/Impact: 
We have been extremely humbled by numerous Junction Members contacting us as a YMCA managed/operated facility, with regards to your request not to stop direct debit Membership collections, as you recognise that as a Charity YMCA is vital and central to local communities and it’s quest to end homelessness, and to impact all individuals/families with a brighter, fair and more positive future. Your comments/actions have been so very much welcomed and appreciated. 

We will still be suspending all direct-debit and upfront Memberships until further notice…but if you are in a position to ‘donate’ towards the impacting work of YMCA Bournemouth, Poole & Christchurch then please use the link below to make an one-off donation or to set up a monthly donation contribution.
