Attention gym members! The Pelican Centre gym is getting fitter in 2020.

After plenty of planning by our team, the roof of the gym area will be fully replaced in the new year to put an end to leaks and damp problems.

New Year New Roof

Roof Refurbishment 2020

In January 2020, we'll be carrying out works to protect our fantastic community facility. The new gym roof will allow us to grow our capacity and secure the building for our long-term future. It’s an exciting time!

When will the work take place?

Works commenced on Monday 27th January 2020.

How will this affect me?

There may be a small amount of disruption to the gym during the works. Internal scaffolding will be erected, and you may notice more noise from the construction work.

Other than when the scaffolding is erected and taken down, you will still be able to access the gym as normal. 

How long will the work take?

We expect that works will take around 12-15 weeks. This may be longer if the repair works become more complicated.

Can I still use the gym?

Yes! The gym will be closed briefly for short periods only when internal scaffolding is erected and taken down. This is for your comfort and safety.

We expect the gym to be either fully or partially operational throughout. We will keep you notified of any anticipated closures.

The gym will otherwise be open as usual while the roof works take place.

What about classes?

From Monday 27th January for 2 weeks, all classes excluding group focus and gentle gym, will be held at Astley & Tyldesley Methodist hall - 1 minute walk away!

All classes will carry on as normal & are booked through the normal way.

Is the swimming pool affected?

No, the swimming pool is not affected at all by the roof works.

Please keep an eye on our social media and website for more updates.
