Hi and welcome to another great week of Complementary Fitness classes.

Advance notice re Thurs 12 Dec:

as you know, the General Election has been set for Thurs 12 Dec and instead of having our class in the Dell Room, as we usually do, I thought I’d just cancel the class that night.  Coz of the date, I’m sure that the Dell Room/Colinton Parish Church may be used for Christmas parties or other events especially being so close to Christmas.  I also wondered if you might be busy with other ...

Hi and welcome to another great week of Complementary Fitness classes.
Reminding you that Bridge Road, Colinton is closed for 3 weeks for gas repairs.  For me, I’ll come up Craiglockhart to Colinton Road for Dreghorn Loan classes instead.
