You may be interested to know how our air handling system works. It is very efficient and it does not recyle the air. It draws in fresh air as described here. This is an important point for your safety in these times.

The Gym is open (by appointment only – we are keeping the appointment system in place for now, to ensure there are not too many people using the gym at a time.)

  • Opening hours 8am-1pm on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, 9am-3pm on Tuesdays, 9am-1pm on Thursdays and Saturdays.
  • Booking essential by ringing 811878
  • 1 hour sessions to include 15 mins cleaning time
  • New members can now be inducted and programmes updated by Jason. He can also offer personal training
  • Membership costs £22 per month (click here to download a Standing Order form)

We have set up two sets of gym equipment, spaced out sufficiently so that four individuals or households can use them at one time. A risk assessment has been done and strict hygiene guidelines apply, such as:

  • Use of hand sanitiser before and after
  • You must clean all equipment, including mats, after use with spray provided
  • Only one person or household on each set of equipment at once
  • You must not use the gym if you are at all unwell and let us know if you subsequently develop Covid 19 symptoms so we can inform other users
  • Take your programme home with you and bring it back each time to minimse handling

Christmas Circuits

The sessions below are still going ahead over the Christmas break. Line Dancing classes will be suspended from 24th December and will resume on 4th January.

The Circuits session on Sunday 19th December is “Christmas Sunday Circuits”. Come dressed in your best festive gear. Prizes will be awarded for various random reasons!

  • Friday 24th December – Tone Zone at 9.10am
  • Wednesday 29th December – Lean Gym at 9.10am
  • Sunday 2nd January – New Year Special Sunday Circuits at 9.45am

Apart from the above, the remaining classes between Christmas Day and New Year’s Day are cancelled as we are sure you’ll all have better things to do!

Jason’s Circuit Training and Line Dancing Classes

How do I register for the online sessions?

You will need to download “Zoom” onto your computer/tablet/phone to see the session. This is really easy and takes about 1 minute. You can do this before by signing up to Zoom clicking on the link  (it’s free) or alternatively, simply click on the invite and follow the instructions, just before you want to join the session. For circuits, you will need dumbbells or weights of some kind (water filled milk containers are fine)  and a mat. This is the link to all classes – just click on this a few minutes before the class start time.

Line Dancing  Sessions

Both these classes are back in the hall from now on Tuesdays at 12pm and Fridays at 11.30am – price £5 (please pay at the reception desk).

Why not have a go at Line Dancing? It’s good for the body and the mind! There are two classes a week. Tuesday’s class is for regulars who have been Line dancing for some time. The Friday class is aimed at  beginnners or those who feel they need more support and to take it slowly. Feel free to email Jason with questions and requests of dances you’d like to go over again:
