We need your help to move forward with opening a gym in Shepton, with enough interest we can build a gym that fits everyone's needs. Whether you’re a complete beginner, a gym pro, or somewhere in-between we want to build this gym around the community and what you want. 

We do have a small issue though, we tried to put in an offer for the first floor of the building in our cover photo above only to be told that is was under offer pending a change of use from designated space for a gym to office space for a Police Response Centre which is already stationed in the Space Mendip Offices. 

The Haskins Retail park is the perfect location for our new gym and is possibly the only place that could work. The building is very visual, has adequate parking and with 1000s of people driving past every day it will certainly help us provide the very best equipment and service.

We believe that the retail part of Shepton should aim to bring in business and the public which will in turn help other businesses and the local economy. This includes providing a service, providing jobs as well as keeping everyone healthy. 

Providing a Police Response Centre in this location will stop any potential businesses that require a good location and parking from opening. A Police Response Centre can be just as effective and cheaper for the taxpayer if located in a less central location and still provide a great service to the community.

We need your support to oppose the change of use so we can move forward with opening our doors and provide a much needed gym in Shepton Mallet. We have heard the rumors of other local gyms closing and we can to fill that gap with something great. 

With the new of Greggs and Subway opening below, we think that a gym could be a great addition to our town.
