A POPULAR gym in central Bournemouth has closed due to a lack of water.

The Gym Bournemouth on Westover Road say they expect to reopen later today.   

In the meantime, customers are being advised to use The Gym Poole in the Nuffield Industrial Estate.

A sign stuck in the window of the gym’s entrance on Westover Road said: “The Gym Bournemouth is temporarily closed for emergency reasons until further notice.

“We hope to be open within a matter of hours.

“Due to no water supply, we have been forced to close in regard to our staff and members welfare.

“We will reopen as soon as possible but please stay up to date with emails and social media to see the latest updates.”

The Gym Group have been contacted for more information. More follows
