Manager's Message

I don’t know if it’s only me but it feels like we are heading into the holiday season with lots of people booking their family holidays… very exciting! Also lots of people enquiring about classes or personal training which will help them get in shape for their holidays - so lots of positive vibes in the club.

With that in mind the fitness team have lots of activities happening in the coming weeks so please keep an eye out as a beach body bootcamp or yoga workshop could be just what you need to give you a pre-summer boost!

Club News

Car parking issues…
Can we please ask you to help us manage the car parking arrangements at the club by NOT parking in the first bay as you drive into the club, unless you are driving a high sided vehicle.
Cars parked in this bay are causing a number of issues and forcing high sided vehicles to park in front of the emergency barrier and causing congestion and an obstruction.
There are also cars still parking in the bus stop area and in the parent and toddler bays that clearly should not be parking in these zones.
We do not want to bring more stringent measures in place so please abide by the above comments.
Thanks from the Roko team
