Important Update: COVID-19 Coronavirus Pandemic

As of the 25th July 2020 the Government has announced that indoor exercise classes can resume under COVID-19 guidelines and adherence to social distancing measures.

This is fantastic news for us as an exercise provider but also for you, our valued participants, and means we are able to bring forward phase 3 of our "Project Restart Plan".

HOWEVER....although the climate is changing we are acutely aware that the average age of our participants is 65+, many of whom also have underlying health conditions and are understandably hesitant to resume "normal" activities.
  
With that in mind we are running both Face-to-Face AND Online/Virtual classes, 18 per week in all, to cater for everyone's needs.

The Face-to-Face classes will be delivered under COVID-19 protocols (including  social distancing & hand sanitising measures) from Lark Lane Community Centre, Sefton Grove, off Lark Lane, and will be restricted to 10 participants only. Classes will be on a first-come-first-served basis utilising an online booking system and will be tailored, meaning no equipment will be necessary or will be limited in the first instance (with disinfectant and cleaning protocols adhered to).

Our Virtual/Online classes will continue as per usual since lock down (ie via Facebook) and will be delivered with little or no equipment necessary. Participants to these sessions will therefore 
need online access and a strong internet connection. 

Great news we think you'd agree but please be assured, we are constantly monitoring Government guidance and restrictions and as a health provider we have a duty of care to you, our valued participants, to look after your health and that of your family and friends in the first instance. 

So as we cautiously begin the next phase with renewed hope and optimism we look forward to seeing you as we slowly transition back to normality.

With Healthy Regards
