Portsmouth Newsletter January 2017

4th January 2017 | Portsmouth

Manager's Welcome

May I take this opportunity to wish you all a very Happy New Year.

We have made many changes to the club in 2016 to really improve your leisure experience and those changes came as a result of the member Forums that took place when I joined the club in November 2015 and the comment cards received during the year.

From the feedback received, You asked for Improved showers, Gym upgrade, Improved cleaning of the club and improve maintenance and redecoration of the club – I believe we have been relentless in making these changes happen and the club is looking really good as a result of the investment and team commitment we have made. With the recent price decrease offer for 2017 I believe the club is now exceptional value for Money. So it is now time to go again…. I would like to hold two member Forums in January to understand what improvements you feel we still need to make to further improve your leisure experience this year. I am really interested to see how you feel we can improve our service levels and encourage more members to experience group exercise classes at the club.

The Forums will be held in the bar lounge on the following dates,  Please register your name on reception if you would like to be involved. 

Wednesday 18th at 6:30pm
Friday 20th at 11am

May I also take this opportunity to thank those who took part in the forums last year, your feedback and support is very much appreciated.
