17-02-2016 ATTENTION ALL GYM MEMBERS

Due to the increased cost of retaining a good instructor, we have been making a loss on giving our members FREE classes with their gym membership.

As a charity we can no longer subsidise the cost of the H.I.I.T and Circuit classes. These have been subsidised since January 2015 on a temporary basis to say thank you to you all for your continued support. 

From Tuesday 1st March 2016, there will be a discounted charge of �2.00 for members as opposed to the �3.50 for non-members. 

we hope you understand our reasons for this and agree that it is still good value for money. 

We look forward to your continued custom and support. 

02-05-2014 Mel Stride MP's Visit!

Mel Stride MP, found time to take part in Ballet and Junior Football when he came to open The Groovy Tripp Room!

26-04-2014 GRAND OPENING OF THE GROOVY TRIPP ROOM!

A BIG Thank you to Central Devon MP Mel Stride, Councillor George Gribble, our Studio Cyclists, Volunteers and Directors who came to support our Official Opening of The Groovy Tripp Room, Studio Cycling!

MP Mel Stride and Councillor George Gribble enjoyed a brief  'Spinning' session at the Centre on Saturday 5th April, when they visited to carry out the official opening of the new indoor cycling studio.

Said Mel Stride: 'Moretonhampstead continues to punch well above its weight in terms of community facilities and this new indoor cycling studio is a superb addition to an already excellent Sports Centre that offers better facilities than many towns four or five times the size. I urge local residents to take full advantage of what it has to offer.'

Devon County Councillor for Bovey Rural Ward, and Deputy Chairman of the County Council, George Gribble, has always been a great supporter of the Centre, built by the community with Lottery funding and run by the community for the benefit of the community. 

Says George:  The Centre at Moreton has always delivered far beyond expectations of a small community and sports centre.   I could be tempted to join these classes more regularly and greatly improve my 'Spinning' skills!
