Active Tameside through to finals of the Community Leisure UK Awards

Published: 26th February 2020

Active Tameside has made it through to the finals of the 2020 Community Leisure UK Awards, in the ‘Demonstrating Social Impact’ category. Their Everybody Can services include programmes and interventions aimed at removing barriers to enable people to live their best lives.

One of the projects highlighted in the Award nomination involved the identification of a core group of 23 young people, highlighted by the police as being involved in regular incidences of anti-social behaviour in the local area. There were concerns in the escalation of such behaviour and its impact on the local community, other young people and the individuals themselves. As part of the intervention, the ‘Engaging Communities’ project provided a network of easily accessible sports and physical activities for a targeted group of young people in Jigsaw neighbourhoods in Droylsden.

The Community Leisure UK Awards champions and showcase the outstanding achievements of member trusts throughout the 2018/19 year. These will be the 4th national Awards for members, building on the success and positivity from previous events. The Awards are an opportunity to recognise, celebrate and share the achievements of leisure and culture trusts across the UK.

The winners will be revealed at the Awards ceremony on Wednesday 20th May 2020 at the Science & Industry Museum in Manchester.

My family experienced the Hyper Bowling last week. My children absolutely loved it and wouldn’t stop talking about it, it was such great fun & good how any age can win. I was impressed by the price and how clean everywhere was…

The staff! I’d still use Active Hyde’s gym if the facilities were rubbish and the price was high. There is always a cheerful person on hand to provide help and advice, both on site and on the phone.


10/10 great facilities and location. Excellent instructors and friendly staff.


The gym and reception staff are very friendly and knowledgeable, always happy to assist… I would highly recommend the gym to anyone who is looking for a friendly, professionally run gym with a great atmosphere that caters to all ages and abilities.

I am grateful to the staff at Tameside Wellness Centre for understanding my difficulties, especially since they are invisible. But believing and supporting and being kind to me has made me more determined to continue with my passion for life and remaining active as best as I can…
