Gillingham Newsletter August 2019

7th August 2019 | Gillingham

Manager’s Welcome

I can’t believe how fast this year is going but it’s going well. The club has had its challenges and changes this year and I just want to thank all of our members because this has been helped along because you share your experience with the team and this then helps us to improve and make your time here as enjoyable as possible, so please keep the feedback coming.

I hope that some of the additions to the club are going down well. The new aqua music box seems to have caused a splash (I know terrible pun), the new hand weights have gone down well and its really good to see more children taking up exercise in the kid's camp.

We will also be having our free weights benches re-upholstered and we are also progressing with works in the steam room to bring this area back to life. The studio 2 temperature has now improved but of course we will closely monitor this moving forward.  

The pool temperature with the plant room challenges has fluctuated as of late, however we have worked on this and it is now returning back to normal, although it has remained within the parameters we aim to maintain a consistent temperature.

Can I ask that we continue not to park in the disabled bays without a badge and that when using the over flow car park the parking area is used with other members in mind and not to park at the edge of the car park as this doesn’t help people driving in and out of the car park.

I hope you have a great August. Remember, keep those goals in mind, action is what will create the changes you are looking for and consistency is key.

Sales of high-caffeine energy drinks to children under 16
With health and wellbeing in mind please be aware that we are stopping the sale of high-caffeine energy drinks to children under 16 from 1st August 2019.
High-caffeine energy drinks carry advice stating that they are not recommended for children, and there are widespread concerns about the impact that these types of drinks can cause when consumed by children under 16.
Therefore Roko is choosing to proactively act on the manufacturers guidance and these health and wellbeing concerns.

Important Notice:  Amendment to the Suspension request procedure
We are looking to streamline our suspension request procedure and make it more consistent among both Annual Members and Monthly Direct Debit payers.
Therefore as of the 1st July, all suspension requests must be given with at least 1 months’ notice, with the 10th of each month being the cut-off date to suspend for the following month.  Any request given within 1 months’ notice, will not be accepted.
