Update 17th June
I hope you are keeping well and are enjoying getting your sport and fitness regime back to some kind of normal.
I am writing to all hirers to confirm the process for Seasonal and Block Booking (10 weeks or more) renewals for the next academic year (1st September 2021 to 31st August 2022).
With this in mind, from Friday 18th June to Thursday 24th June, I will be opening up a ‘Priority Booking Window’ for all existing hire customers to raise a Seasonal or Block Booking request via School Hire for bookings between 1st September 2021 to 31st August 2022.
Please note, the following guidelines and priority order:
Priority will be given to existing Seasonal and Block Booking customers for their current slots;
Existing customers wishing to request additional slots will be considered;
New customer requests will be reviewed;
Some booking requests may be amended to fit around other bookings in order to fully utilise our facilities - you will be notified of this via School Hire and you will need to approve any amendment before your booking is confirmed;
All necessary documentation must be uploaded to your School Hire account at the time of making your booking or once your booking has been confirmed (public liability insurance, COVID19 risk assessment (if applicable) and any other relevant documentation;
We aim to have confirmed all booking requests by Thursday 1st July 2021;
Any booking requests received thereafter will then be considered.
Furthermore, whilst we have absorbed, where possible, any incremental increases to our operating and payroll costs, there is inevitably a need for us to slightly increase our prices. Our new prices take effect from 1st September 2021 and are reflected in next year’s booking costs. Please note, as a Trust we have not received any COVID-related grants or funding for the operation of the Sports Centre, and with reduced business levels largely due to the on-going COVID restrictions, our finances have been significantly impacted.
For Club’s, groups and organisations, please refer to the VAT exemption document to check if you are eligible for VAT exemption on your booking costs, this is available on School Hire to download. It is your responsibility to provide all the necessary documentation at the time of booking (whilst completing the qualifying question on School Hire) to support your claim.
In the meantime, please continue to keep yourself and everyone safe by fully adhering to our COVID measures:
arriving at your designated time, beach or sports ready,
wear a face mask and sanitise or wash your hands, and
maintain social distancing and follow our one-way system whilst using our facilities.
We look forward to receiving your bookings for next year and thank you for your continued support of Holmleigh Park Sport Centre.
