Willow Brook Centre Mall Units 11 & 12

Two more businesses are set to begin trading soon at Bradley Stoke’s new Willow Brook shopping centre.

Explore Learning and Curves are on schedule to open in mid-January and will occupy units on the first floor of the main building. The new units are located close to the public toilets and are accessed via the staircase from the centre of the mall.

Explore LearningExplore Learning, a maths and English tuition centre for children aged 5-14, plans to open on Thursday 15th January in mall unit 11. This will be the group’s fourth site in the Bristol area, following the success of other centres in Emersons Green, Cabot Circus and Clifton Down.

Lauren Holliday, Centre Director, told The Journal:

Explore Learning is an Ofsted registered tuition centre for 5-14 year olds where inspiring tutors work with children on maths and English courses that are created to meet and adjust to the individual needs of every child. Explore Learning caters for children of all abilities, as our individualised learning programmes allow our members to work at a level and pace best suited to their needs; stretching and challenging them where appropriate. During a normal Explore session your child worked with some of our excellent tutors, who make our centre a fun and friendly place where children boost their confidence, make academic progress, and enjoy learning!

The company will be holding festive literary workshops at local libraries and plans to visit local schools in the New Year.

Explore Learning is currently seeking part-time maths and English tutors to work at the new Bradley Stoke centre. Candidates must be able to demonstrate a natural talent for inspiring, motivating and bonding with children aged 5-14 and have a minimum grade B in GCSE maths and English. More details can be found on our New Town Centre Jobs page.

Curves, described as a ladies-only “fitness and health facility” (rather than a gym), is scheduled to open on Monday 19th January in mall unit 12. The group is said to be the largest fitness franchise in the world, with more than 10,000 outlets in over 60 countries.

A 30 minute session that burns 500 calories is the centrepiece of the Curves offering. No appointments are necessary and members can simply turn up and join in the continuously running programme.

The Curves website explains:

The Curves 30 minute workout exercises every major muscle group and burns up to 500 calories through a proven program of strength training, cardio and stretching. In addition, club promotions and events encourage women to support charitable causes, learn about health-related issues and forge lasting friendships as part of the global Curves community.

The company said it has already recruited three members of staff to work at the new facility.
