We then normally have 6 weeks of summer classes but I’ve also managed to book 2 extra classes on Tue 7 + Thursday
9 July. These are our 7.30pm Fitness Pilates classes in Craiglockhart Large Hall (Tue) and in the Dell Room, Colinton Parish Church rooms (Thurs). These will be £5 PAYG classes.
There are no classes on Wed 8 or Fri 10 July.

Then our Summer classes starts on Tue 14 July until Fri 21 August.
They’re all our classes on a Wed & Fri at 9.30am classes and Tue & Thurs 7.30pm Fitness Pilates.

However, you’re probably wondering why some classes are in the Dell Room, Colinton Parish Church Rooms and some are in Dreghorn Loan Hall – well, I had a phone call from the Hall Convenor who said that Dreghorn Loan Hall is being decorated between 29 June and 24 July so we can’t the Loan Hall for our classes during those dates.
However, our classes are still on.
So have a look at the dates and venues again above and note them in your diary now so no confusion. But basically, Wed, Thurs + Fri classes up 9 July then 15 – 24 July (incl 24/7) are in the Dell Room and classes from 29 July – 21 August are back in Dreghorn Loan Hall. I’ll remind you nearer the time. Phew!!
