We will be holding a sponsored cycle for Children In Need on Friday 15th November. Our Personal Trainers will be cycling from 6am – 6pm to raise money for charity, so please sponsor them!
We’ll also be selling delicious cakes in our lounge bar between 9am and 3pm so enjoy a morning of coffee and cake, whilst helping to raise money for a great cause.
We look forward to seeing you there.
MEET CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE
Each month we’re going to introduce you to some of our Reynolds team. This month we have our Customer Experience team. They’re the ones getting everyone booked onto spa days and making sure their time at the Retreat is as fabulous as possible!
We have our Head of Customer Experience, Paige, and two of our Customer Experience advisors, Michelle and Shanell.
They love getting to know our members so if you see them around the club, say hi!
IMPORTANT – ROAD ACCESS
The car park at the Borough Green Doctors Surgery will now be gated shut overnight from 6:30pm. This will mean an increased number of cars at the bottom of the drive due to drop offs and picks up at the Scout Hut.
Please can we ask all members to take extra care when arriving and departing the club between the times of 6pm and 9:30pm, Monday to Friday.

NON-DAIRY MILK ALTERNATIVES
People are fast realising that plant-based milks are better for animal welfare and the environment. These milks contain no dairy, making them perfect for vegans. Let’s look at some of the most popular plant-based milks, and see what makes them such good alternatives to traditional dairy milk.
Soya milk is made from soya beans and filtered water. Like other plant based milk alternatives, it may contain thickeners to improve consistency and shelf life. It’s naturally free of cholesterol and low in saturated fat. Soya milk is also a good source of protein, calcium and potassium, and is a better choice for people who have high blood pressure.
While Vitamin D, calcium and protein are added, this milk is naturally rich in several other vitamins and minerals, especially Vitamin E. It is very low in calories as long as you use almond milk with no added sugar. Almond milk also doesn’t raise blood sugar levels, promotes healthy bones, and it may reduce the risk of heart disease.
Coconut milk tastes delicious and it can also help to boost your immune system, as coconut milk contains lauric acid which has antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties.
Oat milk is a popular and excellent source of many vitamins and minerals, and is fortified with added Vitamins A, D, B2 and B12, and minerals such as calcium. It’s great for bone health and may lower blood cholesterol.
