We are starting to reopen
Ardleigh House  is starting a phased re-opening.

Ardleigh House has started to introduce a phased reopening during the month of September.

Strict guidelines have been introduced to comply with Covid 19 legislation. We are busy putting in one-way systems, hygiene requirements and spacing markers to maintain the distances required by the government. Please for the latest information. Things will be different, and we ask everyone to read the signs to protect themselves, other people and our staff before entering the building.

The first class to return will be Emma Aylott with her Yoga class on Wednesdays 9 September for an 8 week course ending 28 October. Numbers are strictly limited to comply with distancing rules but if you would like to join Emma’s class please email your request to  Cost is £60 for 8 week course. As numbers are very limited places are on a first come first served basis and you cannot just turn up on the day.

Ardleigh House is looking forward to welcoming everyone back, when it is safe to do so.

Please sign up for our newsletter here, or at the bottom of this page, and we will keep you up to date, or check this page for further updates.

Please take care, look after yourself and others and we hope to welcome you back again as soon as we can!
