January 2021 Delayed reopening

Dear Members

Further to both Devon and Cornwall moving into Tier 3 and the delaying of Senior School pupils returning to school until Monday 18th January, we have had to give more thought to when to reopen the gym club.

Several of our gym classes are made up of mixed year groups and we also have Member families with children across multiple year groups who all attend gym.  It would be extremely difficult to monitor the situation of all gymnasts attending gym and so it is with regret that, in order to keep Members and Coaches Covid-Safe, the Trustees of NDDGC have decided that the gym club will remain closed for the meantime and reopen in line with the return to onsite schooling of all Senior School pupils.

We are sorry to be writing again with news of more delays to the return to gym, but we must consider the wellbeing of all Members.  Fees paid for classes not taken due to the Club’s closure will once again be carried forward.  

Thank you again for your understanding.  We are very frustrated at not being able to return to gym but hope that the testing that is going to be put in place and the vaccines which are becoming available, will mean that once we do restart classes it will be possible for us to remain open and move forward at the Club, invite new members and increase capacity.

We will be in touch with a further update before opening.
