I handed my copy in to the membership person, who has now left the gym. The debt is £372 from Golds Gym and £130 from the credit company. The contract was for 12 months. They refused to send me a copy.
Thanks for your prompt responce. I managed to get in contact with the membership person who offered me the free month and took my copy of the contract from me a week before he left. He has emailed back confirming that he did infact offer me the free month and take the copy from me which he filed away.
During the time after he left I made several phone calls to the gym and the head office. They repeatedly failed to get back and would not send a copy of the contract which stated the free month. They concluded (by phone) that if I did not have the copy they would not give me the free month. I did not recieve my free month which was promised by the membership agent. The free month was mean't to be the sixth month, I can confirm this was not given. I wrote a letter and hand delivered it to the membership agent (Kavita) who is no longer present explaining that I joined on the offer of a free month, this was not upheld so the contract (which I was refused a copy) is null and void and I will be terminating my membership. I got no responce from the letter. Kavita has also left the establishment.
