Urgent Notice Building Closure

Civic Centre update,  12th February 2020.

Dear Members, Staff, and Volunteers,

(1) Wirral Borough Council have at last confirmed a date of Monday, 24th February for us to re-open our classes which run on the First Floor of the Civic Centre, i.e. those not listed in 2 below.  We look forward to seeing you again for your classes from this date.  We will of course reimburse you in your class for the first five weeks of term which were cancelled.

(2) Unfortunately, the works on the Ground Floor and Basement rooms are more extensive and have been problematic, and the Council now tell us they will be not be completed before 31st March!

We have therefore decided that, regrettably, we must cancel the whole term for the following classes: - Pilates, Keep Fit, Yoga, Chair Aerobics, Tai Chi and Looking at Art.

We know this will be a great disappointment to you, but we really have no workable option, and we will of course mail reimbursement to you for the whole ten weeks of term.

This closure has been extremely frustrating for us all; the only saving grace is that the centre will at last have a fully refurbished heating system throughout, with individual radiator controls in all the rooms, which hopefully will overcome our temperature problems.

Our Summer Programme will be with you around 9th March (mailed out to everyone not on courses), and members bookings for the Summer term will open then. New members may apply from 30th March onwards.

We thank all 3Ls members for their patience and understanding, and for the kind offers of help and support that we have received.

With Best Wishes,

David Bickford, General Manager, 12th February 2020.

Please note  that  our classes which run outside the Civic Centre will continue  as normal – you can check which these are on the courses page.
