The hub will close from Monday, March 4, to Thursday, March 28.

A Live Borders spokesperson said: “All membership payments will be frozen for Teviotdale Leisure Centre over the closure period, all members will still be able to access all our swimming pools, gyms or fitness classes at any of our other locations.
