|A newsletter is produced every 2 months with a range of activities - usually 2-3 a week that members and volunteers can choose to book on. There are no rules on the number of activities they do, they just choose the ones that work around their lives and interests.|
Some of the activities we have offered include:
Theatre trips both locally and in London, meals out, social evenings, art classes, sport activities, knitting and sewing, discos, Chessington, trips to the seaside, go-karting, bowling and chocolate craft sessions.
The newsletter and membership form gives members the opportunity to say what activities they would like, and where possible we try to include these in future programmes.
We run Clubs for two of our popular activities: Creative Art and Kurling. These are offered at a reduced price based on the cost of 12 sessions a year and have proved to be very popular.
Once a member has signed up to a Club we issue a membership card with the full years dates on it and they no longer need to book or pay for it.
Other activities are booked on the newsletter booking form which is then sent into the office with the relevant payment for all the activities booked. This needs to be received two weeks before the date of the first activity they would like to attend to guarantee consideration. This allows us to ensure we have adequate volunteer support and prepare all the necessary paperwork including emergency information. A member may only attend an activity if they are booked on it.
Leisure Direct has a duty of care for all our members from the moment they arrive for an activity until they leave. Getting to and from the activity is their responsibility.
