Whilst the easing of lockdown restrictions allows more freedom, it is clear that COVID 19 has not gone away. We are working to resume activities in a way which is safe and responsible. Our priority is to protect the health and wellbeing of participants, coaches and volunteers, and to help stop the spread of the virus. 

What kind of activities can I take part in? 

You can take part in our group exercise activities, which are delivered by friendly, highly skilled and experienced staff and volunteers. Please see our timetable for further information.
