move Urmston will open on the 16th March 2020.

The ‘pre-opening membership’ is a membership sold during the period of time memberships are available before move Urmston has opened, memberships during this period will enable you to take advantage of a great offer, which is available by monthly Direct Debit fixed or flexible options. Annual membership is not included in the pre-opening offer and will be available to purchase after the pre-opening period. To join now buy online.

Prior to opening we will be offering a limited number of Move Well memberships that will be discounted. They will be available on a first come, first served basis.
