Changes to Riversmeet - June 2021
The RiversMeet team and trustees are proud to announce some essential changes to your centre.
 
After many months of applying for small grants to help us improve and assist in the recovery of RiversMeet, we can now announce that we have been successful. Both Sport England and other funding streams have assisted us in our quest to recover and have played a significant part in ensuring that this essential project comes to fruition.

This means that we are now able to create bigger Studio areas so we can manage social distancing better than we currently can. The 3rd floor (Lodden and Shreen) will be converted into modern and functional studio areas for aerobic and stretch classes, along with a classroom. The additional capacity will also ensure that we can create an improved environment for all our users and increase the number of classes we can offer.
There are many advantages to the changes that are being made and would ask you to refer to our plans, which are located on the customer notice board in the reception area. These are major changes to our current offering, and we hope that you all appreciate why we have had to make them.

There will be some disruption to classes from week commencing June 21st. We anticipate the studios to open on Monday 16th August. We are very happy to chat with all of our loyal and dedicated customers here at RiversMeet, and if you require more information, please email Alan Waistell (General Manager) directly - alan.waistell@riversmeetgillingham.org.

The RiversMeet Team would like to personally thank ASDA once again for helping RiversMeet. Having a local provision such as Asda that understands us as a charity is heart-warming.

The continued support by whatever means has been on going and we would hope this is continued. The relationship between Gillingham Community Leisure Trust and Asda has grown from strength to strength and every year Asda pull out all the punches to support us.

The kind donations today will help raise vital funds to support our future, so please pop in and buy some tickets at Reception to see what you can win.

A massive thank you from myself - Alan Waistell General Manager - and we look forward to the next venture with Asda.
