Update on Capital Expenditure Works
New Upstairs Shower Area
We would like to inform members that additional capital works are to be carried out in the Club.
The new gym and changing area are now almost complete, and we have made the decision to extend the works to include the renovation of the upstairs showers. Three new shower cubicles with integrated changing space will be created to allow private showering within the Club.
Whilst the contractors are on site it has been decided to commence the refurbishment on Monday 16th September. SJS estimate the work will be completed within 4 weeks.
We are pleased that during this period the new gym space and open balcony will be operational from Monday 23rd September, however the class studio space will continue to be closed off to members to allow SJS to complete the work in the shower room.
Classes will continue to run in the Members Lounge and Arthur Conan Doyle Centre and an updated class schedule will be emailed out shortly, as well as being in the Club and in our “Latest News” section of the website.
We believe that the investment in a new private shower room will further enhance members experience of the Club.
We are grateful to members for their continued support, which has allowed such improvements to be made.

Single use Disposable Cups
With many companies across the country trying to reduce the use of single use disposables and a noticeable increase in our usage over the past few months we have decided to remove all cups from our water coolers in the Club. Cups will still be available from a member of staff on poolside, each member will be limited to 1 cup per visit. We urge members to help reduce single cup use and bring with them their own water bottle.
We will now be recycling all used plastic bottles (shampoo, conditioner, bodywash etc.) so please add these to our poolside recycling bins!

Vegeware, it’s made from plants not plastic
As part of our drive to reduce waste going to landfill and improve our contribution to sustainable waste management the Club has replaced single-use plastic food and drink packaging with cups plates and cutlery made by Vegware for use by members.
Vegware supplies catering disposables made from renewable, lower carbon or recycled materials which can all be commercially composted.
