Classes

Message from Julie Carter, Building Operations Manager

As Scotland moves into Level 3 this week the Centre is delighted to welcome back two of our long standing groups.

On Tuesday, 27th April Shishi Kai Judo  returned and on Wednesday, 28th April Monkey Music  restarted.

For both, it will be the first time they have been in the building since Christmas. It will be great to see Chris and Abbey and all their attendees again.
Reassured that the Centre has taken all the necessary steps to ensure the safety of those returning and at the moment only those attending the classes will be allowed to enter the building.

As we move down the levels and restrictions ease we look forward to welcoming back our adult exercise classes in mid-May and being able to open our doors to the public again from late June all being well.

We can’t wait! It has been a very difficult time for everyone and we are grateful for the support we have received while the Centre has remained closed.
