FLAME Awards 2014 categories revised


The FLAME Awards criteria have received a shake-up in a bid to better reflect how the leisure sector has evolved and to create opportunities for clubs, industry suppliers and stakeholders to celebrate how their work impacts health. The FLAME Awards 2014 will also see


the introduction of new awards and, for the first time, operators and suppliers will be up against each other in a number of new categories. New categories include ‘Workplace


Wellbeing’, ‘Shaping the Future Generation’, ‘Go Green’ and ‘Go Outdoors’. Another addition is the ‘Supplier of


the Year’ Award. This category will give suppliers the opportunity to put themselves forward against the best in the sector. Details: http://lei.sr?a=U4x0i


Everyone Active and Fit for Sport run Legacy Games


More than 700 children took part in a day of activities and healthy competition designed to deliver the sporting legacy of the London 2012 Olympics Games. The Legacy Games event, which took


place at the Harrow Leisure Centre in October and was run in partnership by Fit for Sport and Everyone Active, aimed to deliver a legacy of sport and community engagement to children aged 7–11 years. Everyone Active and Fit for Sport have


made a joint pledge to have 500,000 under-16s engaged and active, to be achieved through a host of Legacy Games days for primary school children across the UK; Harrow was the third so far. The event started with a ‘motivational


mass warm-up’ with GB Olympic swimmer Steve Parry before dividing the children into smaller groups for a variety of sports activities and team-building challenges, with the aim of inspiring them to lead a healthy lifestyle. In the afternoon there were competitive sprint races and inter- school relay races, with teams of up to 30 taking part. The day ended with a medals ceremony. Details: http://lei.sr?a=K4F3l

Council’s executive member for leisure, says: “Having watched the building take shape over the past year, it’s so exciting knowing that Holt Park Active is now open to the public. I’m sure this fantastic new facility will quickly become a hub for the whole community, as well as something that the city can be genuinely proud of. “The centre is one of the biggest investments


in leisure in Leeds for the last 30 years and will help a huge number of people to live healthy lifestyles.” Details: http://lei.sr?a=0i1q9


50th Pure Gym site opens in Sunderland


Low-cost fitness operator Pure Gym opened its 50th site in September, located in Sunderland. In keeping with its policy of


making fitness affordable and convenient, the new site is located at a Tesco Extra store. Ang e l a Cr awshaw,


property director for Pure Gym, says: “The footfall that a Tesco supermarket receives is obviously a huge bonus for us, but as a busy gym operation we’re also able to reciprocate that to a certain extent with hungry gym-goers. “Having a gym and a supermarket under


Pure Gym expects to be operating a total of 80 clubs by the end of April Having opened 50 gyms in just under four


one roof also makes it easier for customers to fit exercise into their normal routine, and we hope that the collaboration will serve as yet further motivation for individuals to combine a healthy diet with regular exercise.”
