Thankyou for your responses they are much valued
I beleive we can afford to do it with some losses, its natural. Like you say some people just dont like change at all!
Also with having our own premises theres the opportunity for us to rent out the place to other clubs. Granted its small but one of the local leisure centres we enquired about for a 2hour slot was £50 + VAT and was a much smaller room!
Again we have the option of selling our own equipment, nutrition etc.
