Direct Debit Information

Important Update - Direct Debits

When we were approved to re-open, we instructed Harlands, the company who manage our Direct Debit payments, to reactivate memberships as of Monday 10th August. Unfortunately but understandably, for reasons beyond our control, this was not actioned and therefore payments were not taken in August 2020.

Harlands are due to imminently communicate directly with members to state what payments will be taken and when, including when your normal monthly Direct Debit will commence.

Although we are the service provider, your membership and direct debit contract is with Harlands (as written into the Ts and Cs upon joining) and therefore, we ask you to contact Harlands directly if you have any queries. You can contact them on 01444 449156 (option 1), or by emailing c.service@harlandsgroup.co.uk. Please be aware they are experiencing a very high volume of enquiries at the moment and are operating with covid19 compromises like many. Your patience and understanding is appreciated during this time.

We have been made aware of some members being contacted to explain when their payments would restart even though they have previously requested to keep their membership frozen. If you experience this, please contact Harlands with the freeze reference number that would have been emailed to you at the time of request.

Many thanks

When we reopened on Monday 10th August, all memberships went 'live' again unless you requested to freeze them with Harland's, the company who manage our membership Direct Debits on our behalf.

This is also the date you are 'live' again and can make gym and class bookings.

Wellsway Sports Centre - Staying Active! That's the name of our new fundraising page.

We are aiming to raise a huge £2,000 to purchase some new equipment ready for our users when we are able to open our doors once more to give them something to look forward to!

As with many businesses, we have been hit hard financially with having to close our doors. We are still paying out operational costs, however we currently have no sources of income. This is why we are calling on members, users, and our local community to help try and raise these funds to energise and invigorate our users when we reopen!

You can read more about our fundraising efforts here, and any donation given would be gratefully received.

Many thanks for your continued support

Wellsway Awarded Sport England Funding

Wellsway Awarded Sport England Funding

We are very pleased to announce that following a bid to Sport England as part of their Community Asset Fund, we have successfully been awarded £60,000.

The funding will go towards the costs of refurbishing the astro pitch, which will take place in the summer.

The current pitch is approaching 15 years old and currently hosts a wide variety of community sports teams including hockey, football, rugby, and baseball, as well as all the children of Wellsway School. The astro is also used to host primary school festivals throughout the year as part of the School Sport Partnership.

Laura Gaiger, Community and Business Development Manager, said 'We are so pleased with the outcome of the funding bid. The astro is heavily used all day everyday by so many members of the local community; we are really pleased that we will be able to keep on providing a fantastic facility to so many. A huge thank you to Sport England for supporting this project.'

A big thank you also to Keynsham Hockey Club for their support with the funding bid, we look forward to working closely with them for years to come.
