Mark Crutchley, Director of Circadian Trust, a social enterprise that delivers sport and leisure facilities in partnership with South Gloucestershire Council, has been awarded the Third Sector Director of the Year award in the Institute of Directors (IoD) South West regional awards.
He will now go forward for a chance to be a national award winner, judged against all the other regional finalists this autumn.
Mark has been at the helm of the Circadian Trust since it was established just over ten years ago. Today it operates seven Active Leisure Centres in Thornbury, Bradley Stoke, Yate, Longwell Green, Kingswood, Patchway and Downend.
Longwell Green Leisure Centre will undergo a £1.5 million redevelopment to include a new fitness studio with extra stations, new changing rooms, a new entrance and more poolside showers.
The redevelopment means the centre will offer improved facilities to its customers and meet increased demand in the local community, which is set to grow due to planned new housing in the area.
