    • Hi unclebulgaria67,  yes this is a review,  she doesn't really see the GP much as such, its only med reviews and if she is unwell apart from the diagnosed illnesses, she sees nurses for the diabetes checks etc, there is nothing new they can offer her so its a matter of managing and getting through the best she can, which is where I come in as her carer.  She had 12 months cbt for bipolar back in 2009, there are no new things added to cbt so there is nothing they can teach her there, her fibromyalgia is treated with pain relief, there is no nhs physical treatment as only a specialised massage is thought to help but the relief is short lived so the nhs don't provide it (understandably) there is no cure for the condition and we have tried everything.  I will just do my usual best and be there for any assessment which I will request is recorded and hope for the best. Thank you for replying.
    • I have not used a comparison site for some time now... Do they really pass your info on? When it says "we sometimes use your information for third parties to make your life better..."  Basically we just sell your data to anyone who wants it?! 
    • Well who hasn't had a few debts passed on eh?!  And who really wants to give the light of day to any of these scumbags. I accumulated 35+ yellow tickets NTK when parking at my shop premises and they have definitely ben passed on now, not that I care, because in my opinion they should never have been granted access to patrol that car park. 
    • I've asked you a number of questions in my post and you haven't addressed them. Please would you do this. It's a bit difficult having to chase people for answers all the time   Just to add to my original doom and gloom scenario, even if the vehicle is returned to you and you accept it – if it happens to you have received any parking fines or anything else during the period which it has been out of your possession, then you could also be challenged for that. If the purchaser does contact you again and you eventually decide to accept the return of the vehicle, I certainly wouldn't do it without having first ascertained the name and address of the purchaser – and verified this by some evidence – and also get a signed statement that they were indeed in possession of the vehicle from XXX date until XXX date. All very complicated and distasteful – but I'm afraid that this is the consequence of what your daughter has done
    • Not really. The signs have to go where they are practical. Every single yellow should have a time plate, and the motorist has to look for it - you can just say you couldn't see it. If it's there, and I assume the CEO took a photo of it, then the driver has neglected his obligation to find out what the restriction is before parking.   The only way you might be able to argue this is if the sign is next to a separate stretch of yellow line - eg, separated from the one he parked on by, say, a road junction or a parking bay. Every individual stretch of line needs its own sign.

I have been a member of LA FITNESS for about 6 months and I loved the gym however mainly for the use of the pool.


During my time at the gym there were rumours pure would be buying the gym


I have been a member at pure before and hated it.

I contacted LA Fitness via telephone to enquire about the closure of the pool and they confirmed this would happen in October


once I had confirmation I definitely wanted to cancel however they explained this would not be possible!!


I also explained to them I was moving house to fareham where I wouldn't be able to use the gym anyway.


In the end this did not happen but they also said i could not cancel!

They asked me to speak to my gym personally regarding cancellation.


I went into the gym and they confirmed they were being taken over by pure and la fitness was closing down and said if I wanted to cancel I should contact their customer service as I already did and they would note on my account my closure but said due to the closure of the pool and the change of ownership I was within my right to cancel.



I cancelled through my bank and have since recieved a letter to say that I needed to fill in a direct debit form to continue my payment!


I received nothing else no emails or phone calls until

today when I recieved a letter from ARC EUROPE saying I owed £334.40!!!


I am absolutely gobsmacked it has gone from setting up my direct debit again to owing this money!


They gym is now refurbished and a pure gym so isn't even LA Fitness anymore!


There is nothing about this in my contract although it states if there is a change to the use of my gym


I.e my main use (the pool closing) I can cancel.

Or I move which at the time I was meant to I could cancel!

Please help!


I don't fancy a court case or paying for a gym that doesn't even exist anymore!!!


Help me please

Hi Emilly and welcome to CAG


The gym removed a key facility, the pool, and you were within your rights to cancel because of this.


Any suggestion to the contrary is nonsense.


I'd ignore any demands from ARC for now but you need to stay off the phone completely and keep all comm'ns in writing only.


Have you written to the gym at all to explain why you've cancelled ?



We could do with some help from you

I haven't no.

Should I not call LA Fitness to explain?

Or should I send it to them in writing?

Always ALWAYS keep correspondence in writing, unless you can record your phone calls?


Send LA Fitness a letter, obtain ''proof of posting'' which is free from the PO counter, and tell them that you have cancelled your agreement due to the changes to the gym.


Short and sweet and to the point, and inform them that ''I am mindful of your use of ARC and their demands for payments, you are held ultimately responsible for their action, as such continued harassment by them will attract a formal complaint to the relevant authorities, including but not limited to, the CMA and the police.''

Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!
