SECTION TWO 

Answer ALL questions in this section.

Mary, a local resident of Southbank, made a joint New Year’s resolution with her friend Hannah who also lives in Southbank, to eat more healthily and do more exercise in 2016.

In January, Mary picked up a flyer left on the tables in a local leisure centre called Southbank Leisure Centre. The flyer included details of a “Special New Year Offer”, stating that any local resident joining the lecture centre’s gym before the 31st January, could sign up and pay for a fixed term of 12 months “premier membership” at the same price as the “off-peak membership”, with no administration charges for joining. The flyer also states that local residents joining the membership must provide two forms of proof of address, such as council tax payment letter, bank statement and TV licence payment letter. On the back of the flyer it added that those joining under the special offer would also receive a free sports bag (a picture of such bag was also printed). The fees were then set out as follows:

Duration Local Resident Non- Local Resident
Premier Membership
12 Months £180 £240
Off-Peak Membership
12 Months £120 £180

 

Mary and Hannah went to the gym with the proof of their addresses on the 30th January to join up and take advantage of the special offer of the Premier Membership. As the staff were extremely busy, Gary, the Manager, came out of his office to deal with them. He gave them a couple of Premier Membership forms to fill out and sign that included a direct debit form. Gary asked them to fill out their bank details on the direct debit form and said that he would fill in the rest of it later. He booked them in for their free induction on the Saturday and said they could pick up their membership cards from the desk when they came in.

 

 

 

Mary and Hannah turned up for their induction and picked up their membership cards on the 2nd February. They forgot all about the free bags. Two weeks later they noticed that both their bank accounts had been debited with £180.00. Mary telephoned the gym to ask why her account had been debited by £180.00 instead of £120.00. Ruth who works at the club, explained that her membership was processed on the 1st February, after the special offer had expired. When Mary asked to speak to Gary, the manager, she was told that he left the club on the 7th February and no longer works there.
