A POPULAR leisure centre has reopened today after being temporarily closed.

The Littledown Centre, including its café, bar and outdoor sports facilities, shut from 1pm on Wednesday, May 8.

Giving an update on Wednesday evening, on behalf of the centre, Rob Cunningham, director of leisure and business development said: “A big thank you to everyone for their patience and understanding while repairs to a nearby damaged water main were carried out. 

“We have been advised that we can reopen the centre as usual tomorrow morning [Thursday 9 May 2024] and all activities are expected to resume as scheduled.
