Members will be able to use the workshop(s) during specified times only, as set-out in the Membership time and opening hours of the workshop(s). Access to the facilities is subject to satisfactory identification of the member (by means of government-issued identification) and full and timely payment of membership.

We may, with fair notice and at our discretion, close our premises for reasonable periods of time to carry out maintenance, repairs, refurbishment, cleaning or for other reasons within and without our control. We will endeavour to reopen facilities as soon as is reasonably possible in all circumstances. You agree that you will not be eligible for any refund for the temporary interruption in services during the period.

Premises may also be closed for periods such as summer or winter holidays, in which case special rates may be made available to members. This will be communicated to all members in due course and with fair notice.

Thereafter, the membership monthly fee is automatically deducted from the member’s bank account at the start of each month. Failure to collect payments will result in automatic cancellation of the membership.

Failure to pay: If the membership fee is not paid by the due date, The Woodworking Club has the right to immediately terminate the membership. You cannot access The Woodworking Club again until the membership fee due has been paid and a new membership agreement has been signed, including any joining fees. The Woodworking Club reserves the right to collect outstanding fees through a law firm or debt collection agency, as well as to report bad payers. The fees are set by The Woodworking Club or by The Woodworking Club’s external partners. The Woodworking Club reserves the right to disclose personal information to an external debt collection partner. In certain cases, The Woodworking Club discloses your personal information to sub-processors and / or other business partners when required to fulfil the contract with you, to establish or maintain a legal claim, or to pursue a legitimate interest.
