Hello Ladies and Gents

Hope you're enjoying this (so far) sunny Sunday :)

I wanted to get a little feedback from you if you have a chance. I'm waiting to find out if there's availability to have a class on Friday lunchtime (probably between 12 and 1pm).

The class would be different from FOCUS on a Wednesday night and would incorporate some Pilates and Interval Training. BOTH WEDNESDAY CLASSES REMAIN THE SAME :) More »

If this is a day / time that might be of interest, could you let me know.

Many thanks

Junction 22 improvements

Major works to improve junction 22 of the M1 have started as part of plans to boost the Coalville economy.

The junction connecting the motorway to the A511 is being changed to increase capacity and travelling times. Works include the introduction of traffic lights onto the busiest four of the five approaches to the junction.

The road and footpaths will be widened in places, the speed limit approaching the A511 roundabout will be reduced to 50mph and the road between junction and the Flying Horse roundabout will be resurfaced. More »

The works will be completed in July 2016 and have been planned to support increased levels of traffic expected from new housing developments in the area.

Most of the work will be carried out overnight to avoid lane closures during the day and reduce traffic delays. » Less
