Stokewood Gym Update:

Following the recent daytime closure of the gym at Stokewood Leisure Centre, we are now pleased to announce that the gym will re-open as usual on Thursday 24 November, instead of the scheduled date of Friday 2 December.

However, there will be an additional temporary closure on Thursday 1 and Friday 2 December and Monday 5 December,  8.30am-3.30pm to lay the new concrete floor. During this time the gym will still be open in the morning from 6am-8.30am and in the evenings from 3.30pm. Classes and swimming will go ahead as normal.

During the closure you can use the gyms at Sir David English, Littledown, Queen’s Park and Pelhams or come and have a chat with us and we can give you some other activity ideas so you don’t miss out.
