New co-owners join health club and spa



A 15th century health and fitness club has been given a new lease of life - in the shape of two new co-owners.

The Gainsborough Health Club and Spa in Cavendish, near Sudbury, has seen husband and wife team Danielle and Stephen Alen join the ranks alongside current owners Mervyn and Jo Douglas.

Mr and Mrs Alen joined the team in January after falling in love with the building but have only just been able to share their joy after the spa was closed due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Now they have thrown open the doors to welcome back their customers with a new look and invigorated atmosphere.
