We hope you are still all keeping well and safe.

Hi All

We hope you are still all keeping well and safe. We are good and glad to say the zoom classes continue to expand and be a successful alternative to the normal classes.

Things are still slowly easing but alas, at present, we are still unable to return to normal classes. Although some places are opening up, with social distancing still being required and reduced numbers for your safety and wellbeing, it will not be cost effective to start classes at present. This is constantly being reviewed and we will be back at some point. Until then it’s Zoom, so please come and join us. It’s good fun, you can see other members, it keeps you fit and the best bit is you can do it in the comfort of your own home. No going out in the rain or cold on a dark winters night!! Please also remember that you do not have to be seen by other members if it makes you feel uncomfortable. You can just see and hear Salli.

If you haven’t joined us yet on zoom and would like to, please let us know and we’ll forward all the details.
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.

We are starting a Back Care Strengthen and Stretch class in September. Places are still available so let us know if you are interested. Day and time to be confirmed.
Remember also we are now offering one to one and small groups ( at your home or garden) for exercise for your individual needs. If you are interested in this please contact us for details
It is nearly time for September’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.
Please note it is £20 per month per person for 1 x class a week and £35 per month per person for unlimited classes per week. Due to the Covid 19 virus pandemic we cannot accept cash any longer and payment will continue to be by BAC or cheque only on a monthly basis and not per class.
DVD’s are still available. Please let us know if you would like one. Members price £10.

The Happy Hearts Foundation Fund is still very much up and running and you are most welcome to join if you haven’t already done so. If you pay twice yearly the next 6 month payment is now due. This will cover the following six months until March 1st.2021.

In order to simplify the payment process as much as possible, if any members would like to change to making payments by monthly standing order through your bank, we can easily help you arrange this.

All you need to do is to authorise your bank to make a payment of £5 per month, commencing Sept. 1st. 2020.The amount is payable to: Happy Hearts Foundation Fund 2019, our bank is NatWest, the account number is 56192665, sort code 54 41 19.
It would be helpful if you could advise Malcolm by phone if this is your preferred course of action.

If however you prefer to continue paying £30 half yearly, we would be happy to accept payment by cheque which you can send direct to Malcolm. Please include your own address on the reverse of the cheque and Malcolm will send you a receipt.

The draw at the end of September will be doubled, so the three prizes will be: £100/ £60/ £40. This is in acknowledgement of the support shown by our members during these difficult last few months.

If you’d like to join The Happy Hearts Foundation Fund and have a chance to win a little bit of extra cash each month please let Malcolm Hurley know on 07961072424 or e mail hurleyatmere2006@sky.com

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

All our very best wishes

Salli, Geoff and Nigel
