Cheshire East: 'Exercise right to become a trustee'
7:50am Sunday 22nd September 2013 in News
CHESHIRE East Council is on the lookout for directors to head up their new Everybody Sport and Recreation Trust.
The new trust will come into being in early 2014 and will replace the current delivery model of council-run leisure centres and swimming pools and leisure development services.
The aim is to improve services with a greater focus on improving the health and wellbeing of the young and vulnerable.
Council leader Michael Jones, who has overseen the creation of the new sports delivery model, said: “This is a truly exciting time for the council. The way we deliver services will mean that our communities will benefit from a much more inclusive leisure service.”
A total of 11 trustees will be appointed to the board and the deadline for applying is 12 noon on October 7.
Trustees should demonstrate a high level of interest in sport, recreation and health and be able to attract inward investment and have the ability to work as part of a team.
Clr Jones added: “The newly appointed trustees should represent the views of residents and the business acumen and links in the business and local community.”
