Active Tameside shortlisted for two Pride of Tameside Business Awards

Published: 6th September 2019

Active Tameside has been shortlisted for two Pride of Tameside Business Awards;

The Pride of Tameside Business Awards celebrates the outstanding work of businesses from different sectors and inspirational individuals from across the region. There are 23 categories in total, including awards for food and drink, health, digital, tourism and e-commerce businesses.

Active Tameside is leading in the transformation of conventional support services, leisure opportunities and physical activity into a vehicle to address the inactivity in Tameside, through co-production and engagement with neighbourhood and stakeholder partners, to meet the needs of all Tameside residents through their life course.

Shaun Higgins, Director of Health & Social Outcomes for Active Tameside, said: “‘We have gone from just being a standard leisure provider, to a health and social care provider that delivers opportunities to Tameside residents, through the life course.”

Active Tameside enjoyed success earlier this year, having won the ‘Inclusion & Disability Award’ at the ukactive Awards. Last year, the organisation was awarded Pride of Tameside ‘Tourism & Leisure Business of the Year’, so fingers are crossed for further success at this year’s Business Awards.

This year, Active Tameside is proud to be sponsoring the ‘Apprentice of the Year’ award and would like to wish good luck and an enjoyable evening to all nominees.

The winners will be revealed at the awards ceremony, which will take place on Thursday 24th October 2019 at Dukinfield Town Hall.

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…
