TEMPORARY CLOSURE DUE TO NEW ENGLAND LOCKDOWN 5/11 TO 2/12
As you will no doubt be aware that yesterday the Government has announced a second full lockdown for England. This is planned to run for 4 weeks from 00:01 GMT on Thursday 5 November 2020 and remain in place until Wednesday 2 December 2020. Unfortunately, this means that the gym will have no choice but to close during this period.
Whilst we survived the first lockdown, membership numbers have dropped significantly over the last few months, as a result, our financial position is now far more precarious than when we entered the first lockdown. Whilst C.A.R.E. (Herefordshire) CIC remains committed to the GV Fitness Centre and providing this important service to our community, unfortunately, we can’t do this without your ongoing help and support.
We understand that the COVID-19 pandemic and the associated restrictions that impact so many aspects of peoples lives have caused real hardship for many people. As a result, with a new lockdown planned and the enforced closure of the gym for 4 weeks, we will once again be offering members the option of a 1-month freeze on gym direct debit membership fees. You will need to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request this. However, wherever possible we are asking if members can once again help support the gym by maintaining their direct debit payments during this new lockdown, as whilst the team will be placed on furlough we still have several significant bills for the gym that will need to be met if we are to come out the other side and be able to reopen.
Lockdown will be hard on us all and the importance of regular exercise will never be as important as it will be over the next few weeks. As a result whilst we are closed we strongly recommend that our members keep active and make use of the huge number of excellent free to access pre-recorded classes that are available on our YouTube and Facebook page. During the lockdown, we will be reposting these regularly and hope to hear from you about how you’re getting on!
Stay safe, and remember Hands, Face, Space if you have to go out.
Sonya, Andrew and the Gym team.
