Cancellation procedure

If members are unable to attend their class, the centre must be notified 24 hours prior to the beginning of class. Credits will be given to participants if they notify the centre within this timeframe. If participants do not notify the centre of their absence they are not eligible for a credit. A credit can be used within 3 months (that term/holiday period) of the cancellation date. If the youth centre, for unforseen reasons, cancels a term class the member will automatically be issued with a credit which can be used by liaising with the centres bookings and activities officer for an alternative arrangement.
