Belford Community Gym
UPDATE ON BELFORD COMMUNITY GYM 14th October 2022
Belford Community Gym is re-opening
Finally, we are able to re-open the Gym. We’re sorry it took longer than anticipated but there has been a lot of work going on behind the scenes to get it all sorted. Be assured that everyone’s membership will be extended by the full amount of time that the Gym has been closed.
Due to the requirements of our Insurance Company we need to ensure that all Gym Members have had an Induction with all the required safety information. We realise that many of you have been Gym members for many years and will possibly know most of the information we give you. However, to ensure that all members are covered by insurance in case of accidents and that the gym and its equipment are insured, we do need to do this.
This is how we plan to get the gym started again.
Everyone’s Fobs will be deactivated
You will need to book yourself onto an Inductions session – this will be a maximum of 1 hour for up to 8 people
You will need to bring your fob, in an envelope with your name on, to the Induction and hand it to Sarah, who is carrying out the Inductions.
When Steve receives your Fob and your signed document which confirms you have received and understood the safety instructions for using the Gym, from Sarah, he will reactivate your fob and text you to tell you it is ready for collection from him at the Market Cross Guest House, Church Street Belford.
Once your fob is reactivated you can start using the Gym

How to book your induction
To book your session please Text 07817 375 030 giving your Full name, which session or sessions you could attend and your mobile number. Please be flexible if you can be so that we can fill the sessions and get everyone inducted as soon as possible.
e.g. Joe Bloggs Tues 25th 10am only 0888888888888 or Jane Smith Any Wednesday session 010101010101
You can text your availability from now but please be aware that due to a holiday your place may not be confirmed until after 22nd Oct.
Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis
You will receive a text to confirm which session you are booked onto. Please reply with an OK so we know you have received it and can still attend
If you notice people using the gym in the week before 25th October, these will be the members who have volunteered to carry out the daily equipment safety checks and will be having a week to make sure this rota is running smoothly.
If you cannot make any of these times or dates
Please text with the same information as above but including information about when you are available e.g. weekends only, so we can arrange more sessions to suit everyone.
*As Sarah, who is carrying out the Inductions, is employed as a Fire Fighter and so may be on call, there is a small chance that she may be called out, during an induction session. We hope this won’t happen but, if it does, we hope you will bear with us.
We will be able to take new membership applications in the next few weeks once most existing members have received their Induction.
