We can’t wait to welcome people back to our centre really soon. Thank you for everyone’s patience during our closure.

Following the Government guidance we can announce that we are going to reopen the centre from the 1st August. This will be a phased return with the gym, dance studio and outside areas to open from 1st August 2020.
