John van Walwyk has been using Hills Road Sports and Tennis Centre for the past 14 years. Centre manager, Nat Moss, has been working at the Centre all that time and she says, " I look forward to John's visits to the gym and an opportunity to chat with him."
John is a longstanding user of the Centre and is respected by so many people, customers, students and staff alike. Nat has offered John free use of the gym for one year as a thank you for his loyal custom over the years and being such an inspiration to others by proving the benefits of leading an active and healthy lifestyle.
She personally has great admiration for John and hopes that she will be as active as he is when she reaches 90 years of age! John walks from his house to the Centre, completes his workout in the gym and then walks home three times per week. Staff at the Sports and Tennis Centre try to ensure they keep the vending machine topped up with Yorkie bars as he tells them he and his wife allow themselves one piece a day as a treat!
Nat says, "I truly hope John will continue to use the gym at Hills Road Sports and Tennis Centre for years to come and if he is still coming in ten years time his gift will be free use of the gym from there on in (and he can have this as proof in writing)!"
