Active Tameside Wins Quest Active Communities Award

Published: 2nd March 2018

Active Tameside has received a Quest award for being the 3rd highest performing Active Communities team of 2017. Linda De-Giorgio, People Management Business Partner at Active Tameside, collected the award, along with Lisa Roberts, Quality Assurance Manager at Active Tameside, at the joint Quest NBS and CIMSPA conference, which was held at the Chesford Grange hotel in Warwick, from 20th to 21st February.

This was the 8th Quest NBS conference, but was the first joint conference for Quest for Facilities and Quest Active Communities. The aim of the conference was to present a unique perspective on physical activity, including operational challenges and solutions.

Great teamwork and progressive development

Andrew Dwyer, Head of Education and Sport for Active Tameside, said: “Active Tameside are delighted to achieve the award for third highest performing Active Communities sports development team in the country. This has been achieved by great teamwork, along with progressive development of all services and frontline delivery staff which has all been developed going through the Quest Active Communities accreditation. Quest has contributed to whole team development allowing all staff to plan and deliver high quality services within the Tameside community.”

The award comes soon after Active Tameside’s ‘Live Well’ service achieved an ‘Excellent’ rating from Quest, which is the highest possible rating. Receiving both the award and the Excellent rating has helped to show Active Tameside’s success in increasing participation and reducing inactivity – moving people in Tameside from being inactive to active.

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…
