Mary Neale, Suffolk Coastal cabinet member for countryside and leisure, said: “The gym will remain open as usual during the pool closure but there will be no hot water for the sauna, showers or heating

“I hope the closure of the pool does not hinder too many people from enjoying a swim and I would encourage people to try one of our other centres if they have not done so before.”
