Do I need to notify Go Active before I cancel?

Out of courtesy you can email goactivesales@sthelens.gov.uk,  telephone or notify reception of your intention to cancel. This notification may not be in time to prevent the next payment being collected depending on the time of the month.

Is there a cancellation fee?

No, however if your account has previous outstanding payments, they will stay there until they have been paid.

On entry to the facility, these payments will be asked for even if you are still a paying member or whether you pay per session.

If a cancelled customer returns in the future to join, they should be aware that Membership prices may have increased.

When will my payment be taken from the bank?

All payment collections are done on 1st of each month or the next working day if a Bank Holiday. No payments will be collected before 1st.

Monies should be in the members bank account prior to the 1st to ensure payment can be collected.

Do I need my Membership card to attend?
