Important Notice Please Read
Dear Member, Parent or Guardian,
Did you know that joining our club includes becoming a member of British Gymnastics, the National Governing body for gymnastics in the UK? Until this year we have sent members’ details such as names, ages and addresses to British Gymnastics to allow them to activate personal member benefits for you, such as benefits and insurance and to send out your membership pack. British Gymnastics membership runs from 1st October to 30th September.
From 1st October 2017, to comply with the new General Data protection Regulation (GDPR) we will no longer be able to pass on these personal details to British Gymnastics. We are therefore asking all members (parent/guardian of those under 16) to renew your British Gymnastics membership directly through the British gymnastics website.
We will still collect our club fees/membership which helps pay for the running costs of the club and equipment. You will be requested to go to the British Gymnastics website to complete your annual membership renewal process and pay your British Gymnastics insurance/membership fee (which we previously collected on behalf of BG as an annual payment of £17 non-competitive/£41 competitive with our Autumn term fees).
You will be asked to complete this registration process between 1st and 7th October. This process completes your vital insurance cover and until this registration process has been completed you will be unable to attend our classes from 8th October 2017. British Gymnastics will then activate your membership immediately and send your membership confirmation by post and email.
British Gymnastics will then notify us when you have completed your registration.
We will give you more information to help you with this process before membership renewals are due on 1st October 2017. We thank you for your patience and co-operation with this change.
