Hi Everyone
Thanks for your patience.  Im pleased to announce that we are ready to confirm that our booking system and gymnasium is ready to open to Recreational Classes following the Covid Alert Level 2 guidelines week beginning Monday 25th May.  Classes and the timetable remain the same but we will be finishing the classes 5 minutes earlier than usual to allow for the previous class to disperse before the next one arrives.  Below you will find our Health and Safety Plan, please read this thoroughly as we will need your help in maintaining a safe gym environment within the guidelines.  
If you have already booked then you do not need to do anything. If you are yet to book please do so asap.Class numbers have been slightly reduced to allow us to have bubbles of 10 (including the coach) in the gym at one time.  Class prices have been reduced to reflect the late start to the term. People who have already booked pre lock down will have a credit applied to their account in the next 48 hours and we request for you to please pay your account if you have not already.    I will send out  statements once the credits have been applied.
