I think its time to move elsewhere as I am paying for something I am not getting. I don't know what the facilities are like at Southwark Park which is where the 'alternative' venue is as it does not state that on the less than informative website.
I think Southwark Park just has an athletics track and a weights only gym.
I have a Seven Islands gym membership and am currently going to the centre in East Dulwich while it's closed. You can use any of the other Fusion centres including Elephant & Castle, Peckham, East Dulwich and Camberwell. Last year when the same thing happened they gave a 1 month extension to the membership to make up for the closure - although that was for the gym rather than swimming. I don't know what happened with the swimming memberships.
I think the problem is that there has been a lot of talk of replacing the Seven islands centre with a new facility as part of the Canada Water redevelopment. I don't know what the latest position is on that but I wouldn't be surprised if that's leading to a lack of investment at Seven Islands.
