We appreciate that this is a lot to take in and want to thank you immensely for your patience and support during these unprecedented times. Safety for all our customers and staff remains our number 1 priority which is why we have introduced all necessary Covid-secure safety measures to protect everyone’s health.

 

Each activity is open to constant review as are the services we are yet to resume. You can be assured that we will be working hard behind the scenes to ensure that you can safely continue to keep fit and active. It is pleasing to see that the Government has now recognised the value of keeping gyms and leisure centres open and the part they play in helping the community maintain their physical and mental health and well-being and to build up a resilience to the virus.

 

We are SAFE. We are ESSENTIAL. Fit Together. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WHQGLTbTSm0&feature=youtu.be

 

We thank you once again for your continued support and understanding during this extraordinary time.

 

Yours sincerely
