When spaces become available, we contact those who’ve enquired about a space, with details of which days we have available.

The spaces are given out to those who respond to the message on a first come, first served basis

There’s parking at the side of the centre, and there’s a large car park at the rear of the library.

There’s also plenty of available parking at the Tesco store across the road from the centre.

Does my child have to be a member in order to do gymnastics?2021-07-28T14:16:37+01:00

For our recreation classes membership is required and your child must be registered as both a member of our club and of British Gymnastics. An annual membership fee is applicable.

For our Play Gym classes, membership is free.

We also run holiday sessions during school holidays and these are open to both members and non-members.

How much does membership cost?2021-07-28T14:19:00+01:00

Membership of CMIG costs £10 a year and our members must also become members of British Gymnastics which they must take out and renew separately. Membership must be paid prior to participation in class sessions, see our membership page for more information.

What is included in the membership fee?2021-07-28T14:20:47+01:00

Our annual membership fee gives you access to our club’s service and all of the British Gymnastics resources and support that we access. Our club membership runs from September to August each year.

Membership is renewed every September and is paid when booking your child’s class for the first time or at the start of the new membership year.

How can I make payments?2020-11-23T18:41:23+00:00

Please make payments (for fees & membership etc) in cash or cheque – If you need it, there is a cash machine located at the Tesco store across the road.

What should my child wear in class?2021-07-28T14:23:27+01:00

We recommend that children wear shorts and a t-shirt, or if they wish a leotard/leotard and shorts.

If your child owns a gymnastics leotard this would ideal but it is not necessary to participate in a class. If you wish to purchase any items of clothing from our shop you can go to shop.cmig.uk and order them directly.

Do I need to stay with my child?2021-07-28T14:24:22+01:00

[CORONAVIRUS RESTRICTIONS HAS FORCED SOME TEMPORARY CHANGES – at present we are not able to allow non-participants into the centre for our school age recreation classes and the following items marked ** do not currently apply]

**If your child is in one of our Foundation classes, we strongly recommend that you stay and watch your child.

**If your child is in one of our Advanced, High Flyers or Top Flyers classes, then you can leave your child once they’re in class. Or you can watch from our reception area, and enjoy a hot drink and snack while you wait.

**Should you leave the premises, you must return to the centre at least 10 minutes before the end of your child’s session.

[Once the restrictions are lifted we hope to reinstate the above]

No child is allowed to leave the centre without a parent or guardian.

Our Play Gym sessions are Parent and Child classes and participants must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

Can a child do only one class per week?2021-07-28T14:25:09+01:00

We recommend that your child starts with one class a week, to see how they get on in class.

Then, if your child wants to do another class, you can enquire at the reception desk and we will find another day and time that’s suitable for you.

Each additional class, after the first one, includes a 20% discount (on full block bookings only).

What happens if I can’t make it to a class?2017-12-11T10:32:40+00:00

Should you be unable to attend a class within the block and you know this in advance, please let Reception know.

Please note that the class fee is non-refundable.

How do I secure my child’s place for the next block of classes?2021-07-28T14:27:54+01:00

To secure your child’s current place on the class register, you will need to re-book before the end of class during the priority booking period.

Any spaces on the next block not rebooked by the end of priority booking will be offered to people on our waiting list – places in the next block of classes are guaranteed as long as rebooking takes place during priority rebooking.

When is priority rebooking?2021-07-28T14:29:32+01:00

Priority rebooking generally falls on the last 2 weeks of each block.

You can pay the fees on either of these two weeks to secure your child’s space for the following block. We will send out email reminders and notify parents at the end of class when rebooking starts.

What happens if I miss priority rebooking?2021-07-28T14:31:02+01:00

If you do not rebook before the end of your child’s class during priority booking, we will not be able to guarantee your child’s space for the following block.

If you miss the priority rebooking period, we recommend that you contact us immediately so that we can check whether the class still has availability.

If there isn’t, we can try to find an alternative class and will ask you to make payment ASAP to secure the place.

Do you offer classes for adults?2020-11-23T18:55:49+00:00

All of our classes are for children, we do not run any sessions for adults.
