COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

16th March 2020
The health and well-being of our members and staff is our top priority. I am sure you are all aware of the recent COVID-19 (coronavirus) illness that is spreading across the UK. We want you to know that we are continuing to uphold our high standard of cleanliness, alongside new procedures we have implemented and documented below:

  • Regular Deep Cleans – a weekly deep clean of all equipment and common areas has started and is topped up daily
  • Communal Cleaning – areas of high volume will have surfaces, including door handles, cleaned hourly
  • Supplies – we have hand sanitiser available for use at the reception desk and main gymnasium, alongside tissues. Simply ask a member of staff and remember washing with soap is preferred
  • Item Removal – we have removed equipment that is not easily cleaned from our Gym’s and communal areas.
  • We have stopped the use of the water fountain at the Sports Centre site and we encourage users to bring their own drinks if required. However, if water containers are left in the gym over night, they will be disposed of.

We also ask that you help us keep our gym a safe place for all its users and adopt the following NHS guidelines:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • Always wash hands when you get home or into work
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands
  • Cover mouth and nose with a tissue or sleeve when coughing or sneezing, then throw the tissue in the bin and wash your hands
  • Avoid close contact with people who are unwell (therefore, please do not bring your child to gym if they have cold or flu-like symptoms)

In terms of business operations, we will be continuing as normal with the above added procedures. However, should we receive an official closure notice, all classes will cease and we will apply our refund procedures that can be viewed here: Policies and Procedures

We will continue to update our website and social media with any operational changes as and when they happen.

For more information on COVID-19, please visit the NHS information page on https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/ and use the 111 emergency number if you or your child are displaying symptoms.
