February Newsletter 2017


We now have a confirmed delivery and installation date for our new top of the range Cross Trainers that were held up in transit late last year of Friday 17th February. As Precor need to disassemble and remove existing equipment and install the seven new pieces of equipment the gym will be closed from 09:00 – 16:00.

So the timetable for Friday 17th February will be:

  • Open 06:30 – 09:00
  • Closed 09:00 – 16:00
  • Open 16:00 – 22:00
  • The Qube will remain open for classes and general use

There will also be some additional minor works carried out as well during the day. We apologise for the inconvenience this will cause.

Air conditioning units – We are fully aware of the initial problems we have been experiencing with temperature control in the room. The situation is being monitored daily by the contractors and the College Works Team and we aim to have a working solution in the immediate future.


The College is conducting some essential IT upgrade works on Wednesday 15th February. The impact for the Club is that for approx. one hour we will lose our phone and IT systems and will be running manual systems where needed. At this moment we do not know when this shut down will occur. When we do we will communicate this via our social media and through our Club App. Members will still be able to book online via the App and website.


Of the 300 Members VIP places for the £90 for 90 day trial we have just over half left. We are offering a 15 min free taster session which can be booked at Reception before committing to the one off price for life. Remember there is a full money back guarantee within those 90 days if not satisfied at any point. Please do try it as those that have and are doing it regularly and reaping the benefits.


Just a reminder that the bar is available for private hire on a Saturday evening for all types of parties and celebration (excluding 18ths and 21sts). It is a fully licensed bar that can operate through to 1am and food can be provided upon request. Ideal for parties up to eighty persons. The cost for the hire is £ 200 plus VAT and for further details please email Mark Smith on ms@wellingtonfitness.co.uk


Places are still available for this coming Half Term 13th – 17th. Ours is an Ofsted registered holiday programme and various sessions are available for two hours, half day and up to a full day for £ 20. Places can be booked via our Reception or by phoning 01344 444 244.


Our first event of the year is scheduled for Saturday 18th February which is a blind tasting gin and something evening! Five gins some well-known possibly and some exotic ones will be provided for you to taste and guess the brand.  Just to clarify you will not be literally blind folded! Each sample will be accompanied by a little description and background inforamtion. If you guess all five correctly the winners go forward to a little prize draw. Will be a fun night and other drinks will be available at all times to wash down the gins!  Event times 19:00 – 22:00. Tickets are £ 10 per person and places can be booked at Reception in advance.

The March event is booked for Saturday 18th March and is a rugby Six Nations special and is a bit of an early one starting at 17:00 through to 19:30 featuring the Ireland v England fixture. This could well be the Grand Slam decider or it could just be another full on fixture! Either way St. Patricks day is the day before so there will plenty of Guinness on hand and to help soak it up there will be some traditional rugby food of sausage and mash with Guinness and onion gravy available to purchase. No booking needed but just an expression of interest so we can gauge the food quantity. Leave your name and contact details with Reception.
