Happy New Year


Hi All


Happy New Year. We hope you had a nice Christmas, albeit may be quieter than usual and hopefully some of you managed to see your family. All being well 2021 will slowly improve and with the vaccination programme now underway we may get back to some sort of new normality later in the year. For the time being, please just stay at home and keep safe.


The present situation negates Happy Hearts returning to normal classes for the foreseeable future, so please join us on Zoom. We will try to keep you fit and your spirits up until things improve.


The zoom classes have been a great success, so even if/when we return zoom classes will continue. Please encourage family and friends to join us even if they live away. We’d be very pleased to see them. If you would like to join us on zoom, please let us know and we’ll forward all the details. Remember you can do it in the safety of your own home, with no going out in the rain or cold on a dark winters night!! A free, one to one tutorial class is offered to anyone joining us on zoom for the first time.


The zoom system is safe and simple to install on the smartphone, tablet, laptop or desk top computer. If you have any concerns or queries please give Geoff (07921319877) or Nigel (07714419024) a call and they will be happy to assist. We are also happy to hold tutorials on a one to one to assist if required.

It is now time for January’s payment for the classes. Same  details, as previously communicated, with payment by cheque or BAC’s. If you’ve lost the details please let me know and I’ll send again.

To all zoom members that have not filled in and returned the Data form previously forwarded, we would be most grateful if you could do this as soon as possible. This will enable the Happy Hearts insurance to remain valid and we can ensure that the type and level of exercise is suitable for your condition. As we are not in a face to face situation we have the necessary contacts and information at hand should a medical emergency occur. If you live alone, please include a nominated point of contact. Please let me know if you haven’t received a form and I will forward one on to you.

Sorry for this intrusion but it is a BACPR regulation that we have to adhere to.

DVD’s are also still available. Please let us know if you would like one. Members price £10.

For newly joined Happy Heart Zoom attendees, The Happy Hearts Foundation Fund is basically an internal lottery with a draw at the end of each month. The cost of a ticket is £5 per month, payable yearly (£60) or 6 monthly (£30). This helps us keep the cost of classes to a minimum and gives you a chance to win a little bit of extra cash each month


Don’t forget you can catch up with us on Facebook, (https://www.facebook.com/sallihappyhearts) to see what we are up to.


Please take care, stay safe and well. We are still united in keeping you fit and healthy until we can get back to the new normal. Please come and join us on zoom, we guarantee you’ll enjoy it and have a bit of fun.


All our very best wishes


Salli, Geoff and Nigel
