Update - 28 April 2020
We have made the decision to freeze all membership payments effective immediately.
There will be no charge to you during this period of forced closure and your membership will be placed on hold until further notice. There is no need to cancel your direct debit, or your membership.
As and when we are advised that we can re-open and it’s safe to do so, we will be in touch to let you know and look forward to welcoming you back.
We are very grateful to those who have been able to continue supporting us financially during the lockdown period. We are a not for profit organisation and all of our profits are reinvested into facilities and services for the benefit of Northampton residents and communities that we serve.
For those who are able to keep supporting this important work, which is making a difference to local people both now and in the future, we have set up a charitable donation page which you can go to by clicking here.
The page explains in more detail about how your donation, however small, is making a real difference to local people and local communities.
We know that many of you are joining our popular online workouts that are available to take part in at no charge via our Facebook page. We also have a huge selection of free health and wellbeing resources available on our Trilogy At Home page.
We would like to thank you for your understanding during this time and look forward to welcoming you back to our centres soon.
The Trilogy Team
Update - 25 March 2020 Dear Member, This week the UK population has been asked by the Government to stay at home with no unnecessary journeys or social contact to address the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are conscious of not only the social restrictions this has on individuals, families and the communities that we serve but also the financial challenges that many people are experiencing. We are grateful to those Trilogy members who are continuing their membership with us. As you’ll be aware we are a not for profit organisation and all of our profits are reinvested into facilities and services for the benefit of Northampton residents and the communities that we serve. By continuing your membership at this challenging time you really are making a difference to local people both now and in the future. We do appreciate that some of our members will want to freeze their membership while our centres are closed due to COVID-19 restrictions. Whereas it is usual practice for us to require 30 days-notice for cancellation of a memberships we are conscious of the unique situation the UK is in. Therefore upon requests for freezing of membership our team is working as quickly as possible to process those requests. Our direct debit system is manged by external specialists Harlands. They manage similar systems for business and organisations across the UK and they are understandably experiencing high levels of requests. Therefore upon any request we receive to freeze membership please be aware it may take up to 21 days for Harlands to action that request. Due to the high volume of requests at this time, we are unable to send an email to confirm the freezing but please be assured it will be actioned as soon as possible. We do appreciate your understanding at this challenging time and thank you again to those of you that are able to continue your membership of Trilogy. CLOSURE OF LEISURE CENTRES & GYMS 20 MARCH 2020 Dear Customers Following the recent government announcement we are closing all of our centres at the end of the day today, Friday 20 March. We would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank all of our employees who have been working tirelessly on the front line as the situation has evolved. As a Charitable Trust we are heartbroken at having to close our centres and stop the delivery of all of our physical activity programmes across local Northampton communities and in Peterborough. These are unprecedented and challenging times for everyone however, we believe in pulling together for the benefit of our communities and we know that as Trilogy members and customers you are with us on this. Every penny we receive from your memberships is reinvested back into our facilities and physical activity projects we deliver in the local community. The temporary closure of our buildings has huge consequences not only for us as a Trust but also the health of our customers & communities. We are reaching out for your support and to ask you to continue with your monthly membership direct debits if you are able to do so during this difficult time. We do understand that this is not possible for everyone and therefore are putting processes in place to give you the option of freezing your membership until we re-open. We have put together some FAQs on our website which contains information on how to do this. We ask for your patience whilst we work as quickly as we can to process these requests. Our FAQs can be found below Staying fit and active is the best way to build a strong immune system and stay healthy. We are busy putting together workouts, tips and advice on how you can stay active at home and in your local open spaces.
