The Prime Minister has today set out the next steps in the easing of lockdown. See the press conference at Youtube: Prime Minister's Coronavirus press conference (10 May 2021) for details.

Between 4.00pm on Wednesday 12 May and 7.30am on Thursday 13 May, the following systems will be unavailable due to essential maintenance: our online council tax, business rates and housing benefit overpayments service, our welfare assistance form and our test and trace payments form. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

The Louisa Centre Gym will be temporarily closed from Wednesday 5 May to Sunday 9 May. The swimming pool will also be closed from Friday 7 May to Sunday 9 May. Gym and swim activities will reopen as normal on Monday 10 May. The closure period is due to the local elections and reconfiguration of the gym and we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

A monthly fitness class membership can help you save - from as little as £7.50 per week.

Contract types

When you've chosen your fitness class membership, there are two different contract types, and you may pay less because you come under a concession. 

12 month contract

If you commit to a 12 month contract, you sign up to the membership for 12 months, with your membership payment taken out of your account each month for a year. 

No contract (pay monthly)

If you do not want to commit to a 12 month fitness class membership, you can now take advantage of our no-contract membership. This offers you the flexibility for as little or as long as you want. You can take our a non-contract membership from as little as one to 12 months with a cancellation period of 30 days' notice. 

Annual paid in full

If you wish to commit to a 12 month membership and would prefer to make one payment at the beginning of your contract you can pay an annual lump sum. This is instead of signing up to a monthly Direct Debit payment and full payment for the year will be taken when you sign up.
