Leisure centre boss gives talk to town business people

Friday, 6th January 2012.

The boss of Haverhill Leisure Centre will be telling town business people about his organisation, Abbeycroft Leisure, at a networking event this month.

The bestofhaverhill holds its next event on Thursday, January 19, at Days Inn, Haverhill, from 10am until 11.30am and this month it continues the theme of Wanting The Best For Haverhill with guest speaker Warren Smyth, chief executive of Abbeycroft Leisure, the charitable leisure trust responsible for the management and operation of the Leisure Centre.

Warren was appointed chief executive of Abbeycroft Leisure in November 2007 and has seen the £5.2million refurbishment of Haverhill Leisure Centre completed in 2009 and the opening of The Gym Ipswich, an affordable gym in the centre of Ipswich in January last year.

Warren will provide an insight into the scope of the Abbeycroft Leisure operation, some of the initiatives that the organisation has been involved with recently and the part it is playing in the London 2012 Olympics.

Elaine Carr, owner of thebestofhaverhill, said: “Everyone in town knows the Leisure Centre and most have probably used the facilities at some point.

"They may be members of the gym, play football indoors or on the all-weather ptich, take their children swimming or visit the Kids City play area but I doubt everyone is aware of the scope of the Abbeycroft Leisure operation.

"It is a large organisation and has to face the same challenges that any other service- orientated business has to cope with on a daily basis but has still managed to gain an enviable reputation in the health and fitness sector and win several awards.

"Abbeycroft is at the forefront of several innovative projects and is involved with sports development and outreach work in Suffolk.

"Improving health and fitness is something many people will be thinking about at this time of year so it seemed appropriate to invite Warren to be our guest speaker to explain what goes on behind the scenes at Haverhill’s premier leisure facility.”

If you would like to attend this free event call Elaine Carr on 01440 710 158 or email Haverhill@thebestof.co.uk by Monday, January 16.
