Saturday 25 July 2020

Dear All

We are so pleased to inform you that after many weeks in lockdown, The Junction Sports & Leisure Centre can finally re-open its doors from Saturday 25 July 2020.

As I’m sure you can appreciate, there are numerous changes/restrictions within the Centre that have been introduced, in accordance with the government guidelines, for everyone’s safety.  

During lockdown the YMCA team have been very busy installing COVID-19 safety measures throughout the Centre:

  • Glass screens installed at Reception 
  • Gymnasium layout adapted in line with the current social distancing measures
  • Filter modifications to Gym/Fitness Studio Air Conditioning
  • Appropriate signage displayed throughout the Centre
  • Additional hand sanitiser units installed throughout the Centre
  • Additional anti-bacterial sprays placed throughout the Gym/Fitness Studio
  • Increased fresh air flows in designated areas

Facilities/services to remain closed until further notice:

  • Spinning Studio
  • Creche 
  • Kidz Kingdom (Soft-Play)
  • Saunas/Steam Room
  • Café/Licensed Bar

The government guidelines require us to limit the number of people in each area at one time, with this in mind we will be introducing an online booking system for the Gymnasium, Swimming Pool and Fitness Classes.  This on-line system is currently being finalised but will be ready in time for all Members to use upon reopening, further instruction will follow shortly.   

This system will require all Members to create an online account in advance, to avoid any delays to your booking journey.  This can be completed by going to https://thejunction.thejunctionbroadstone.co.uk/pub/RegisterOnline.aspx

Your postcode and email address will need to match the information currently held on our database.  If you encounter any issues, please email Karen Brixey at kbrixey@thejunctionbroadstone.co.uk, Karen will be more than happy to assist.

All Members will be reinstated from Saturday 25 July 2020, each membership will be adjusted accordingly.  If you would like your membership to remain on hold for the time being, please contact Karen using the above email address to make the necessary system amendments. 

If you have any further questions regarding the reopening, please do not hesitate to contact me at martin.stockley@ymcabournemouth.org.uk.

We are all looking forward to welcoming each and every Member back to The Junction and we sincerely thank you for your continued support throughout this unprecedented/difficult time….it is invaluable for The Junction, and for YMCA Bournemouth, Poole & Christchurch.

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.

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.

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.
