Now our youngest member of the team you''ll often find Abbey doing 3 jobs at once or with her head stuck in the computer.... probably still doing 3 jobs at once. Abbey is studying to work with the less fortunate youngsters of the world and is gearing up to set sail on a cruise ship to put her skills to the test.
Jess has worked at the club for many years and takes a keen interest in all the clubs goings on. Since 2012 she has taken on responsibility for membership management and so can often be seen typing away while saying a cheery hello to members.
Julie has worked at the club for many years, tirelessly keeping the club clean in the wee small hours. In 2010 we persuaded her to come out into the open and take on some reception duties. Having enjoyed that so much, she completed an NVQ in Customer Service. Not satisfied with that she went to successfully complete the Level 2 Gym Instructors qualification in 2012.
Rob is the go-to guy for keeping our equipment and club in working order. You'll find him tinkering around on the kit in the early hours making sure it's fully functional for the weeks ahead. Rob is also a fully qualified Level 2 gym instructor so you may even get the pleasure of an induction or programme with him. His specialist area is weight training; as you’ll realise when you see him!
