Holmer's Headlines April 2019

15 Apr 2019

Hello from your Club Manager, Steven Chadwick...

Hello!

This month I write to you with information on our Changing room refurbishment project which will be starting shortly. This project has been long planned and we’re so excited to finally start.

For those members that have been club members and part of the Holmer Park family for some time can be assured that this will be a complete overhaul and not a minor upgrade like the previous refurbishment. We’re replacing and adding extra lockers, extra vanity areas, extra seating and so much more.

We intend to start this project on Monday 13th May and expect it to run for up to 12 weeks. Regular updates of progess can be found HERE

Like with all refurbishment projects, there will be disruption and have planned the following to deal with this as best as we possibly can:

  • Female users will have access to a changing room in the club throughout the project. We intend to start in the female changing room and once that is completed female members will use the current male changing room.
  • For our male users, we have invested considerably in a double temporary changing unit which has benches, lockers showers and toilets. It will be situated on the pool patio and a covered walkway will be constructed to provided access from the pool hall to the temporary changing unit. If you are using the gym access to the building will be via the club main entrance. The pool hall must not be used as access to and from the gym.

We have taken the decision to ask our MALE members to use the temporary changing unit throughout the project simply down to the fact that we have more female members than male.

Work for the temporary changing unit install has already begun by some clearing and extending of the pool patio. The building work for the until to be installed will be carried out WC 29th April and the units themselves will be delivered the morning of Wednesday 8th May. Some parking will be suspended and access to the club may be restricted for a short time for the crane however we aim to keep disruption to a minimum.

Building projects are never easy but you can be sure we have worked really hard to make sure we get this right, the very first time.

Thank you for being part of the Holmer Park family and if I can be of assistance, please drop me an email: [email protected]

Kind regards,

Steven Chadwick
General Manager

Beauty Tip: Feed your skin from within
Most of us know that a diet rich in power foods like dark leafy greens, dark chocolate and citrus can help fight chronic conditions like heart disease and diabetes. However, did you know that these foods can also work wonders for your skin?

What you eat can affect your hormone balance, cause acne and create or lessen inflammation, which is associated with skin ageing. In fact, what you eat can be as important as what you apply to your skin.

Our Spa Therapists at Holmer have given us a list of the top food choices that are good for you and fantastic for your skin. So, eat yourself beautiful!

They are;
- Carrots
- Kiwi
- Soy
- Green Tea
- Dark chocolate (70%+)
- Olive Oil
- Tomatoes

Hello It’s Head Chef Ben reporting,

Sun’s out - patio is open! 
Great to see the cold weather passing and the warmer weather is nearly upon us. We have put the patio furniture out and our Summer BBQ will soon be upon us.

Exciting dish!
This month I wanted to talk about our High Protein Chicken Main. This dish is packed full of protein and includes grilled chicken with Mexican rice, five bean salad and natural yogurt finished with a red pepper pesto and chopped walnuts. A great dish to supplement your workout and you can also finish it off with one of our great smoothies with a shot of protein.

Don’t forget too for the remainder of this month you get 20% off this dish and the rest of our main menu - I’ll see you in the café soon!
