Gym club locks in short term fu­ture in town

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

THE Moss­man Gym Club has caught a break, sign­ing a lease at Pin­jara Place in Moss­man. The lease has al­lowed the club to se­cure its short term fu­ture.

“Hope­fully we can rent it out for a few months at least while we work out our long term plans,” said club man­ager Hay­ley Ben­der. “It has a lot of po­ten­tial, and there’s al­ready a few big ar­eas we can use.”

The club isn’t out of the woods yet - the cur­rent build­ing on the site will limit the clubs ac­tiv­i­ties, with a lower roof that would make some ac­tiv­i­ties im­pos­si­ble.

The club has to re­lo­cate from its old home in the Moss­man In­door Sports Cen­tre fol­low­ing a re­quest from Moss­man High school.

With the move into the new build­ing on Mill St tak­ing place im­me­di­ately af­ter the club wraps up for the year on Novem­ber 25 ac­tiv­i­ties won’t be in­ter­rupted. The move will be a tough one though - Ms Ben­der said they’d be play­ing Tetris to make ev­ery­thing fit in the smaller fa­cil­ity.

“It’s go­ing to be a tight squeeze, but we’re hop­ing we can make it work.” If you are will­ing to help the club move house, you can find con­tact de­tails on the club web­site to learn how you can con­trib­ute.
