Richard Millman, Chief Executive Officer, commented:

We were delighted when Leisure Connection picked up four awards at this year’s Quest Conference. The team that delivers our quality programmes, our regional managers and site management teams have demonstrated a consistent daily focus on quality delivery and improvement, and they have truly excelled themselves this year.

These achievements could not have been realised without the excellent partnerships we share with our local authority clients.  We work tirelessly with them to ensure we are offering a first-rate local leisure and sport service.  I’d also like to commend the hard work and dedication our centre teams put in week in week out.  And last but no means least a huge thanks to our members and customers.  Their continued support and commitment is invaluable.
