Change of time for SW group

Bit of unrest at group this morning, when our new, temporary Consultant, announced that our long- running Monday 9-30 group will now be starting at 9am.
Members were complaining that they can't make it as it doesn't fit in with school runs and traffic.
But the Consultant claimed that it was a decision made by higher SW powers, the reason being that there has to be a half hour break between group sessions, so she can't run 9-30 and 11am; it has to be 9and 11am.
Is this a nationwide thing?

All our groups like that have 2 hours between.

The scales will be open until 9.30 anyway so everyone will still get weighed if they are in the queue.

Groovee, there's always a revolution at even the smallest of changes.
I don't mind as I prefer to be out and about early, and I won't have to wait as long for my post weigh-in breakfast!
Also, it will leave a bit more of the morning free afterwards for doing other things.

I turned up at one of my consultants other classes to pick something up at 7.20pm and his first class was still on 🙈. With a queue forming for the next class.

My consultant does 5 classes on one day and it is always two hours between and IMO it needs to be otherwise the next groups weigh in will be starting as soon as the other group finishes. That means the consultant has less time to have 1-1 chat with members after the group. Means the social team will need to be setting up while the last group is still going and the consultant won’t be able to grab a drink between sessions!
