“Due to the rainfall on Tuesday evening, we were forced to cancel a number of classes and facilities at the Leisure Centre after rainwater leaked through the roof and caused localised flooding in the car park and the centre.

“While the situation has been quickly contained, health and safety remains our highest priority. After reviewing the situation, we have decided to temporarily close the Leisure Centre while the condition of the building is assessed and reviewed.”
