Boss Phil goes through his paces

A NEW leisure centre boss will be put through his paces in Morpeth.

Phil Evans has been appointed Contract Manager for Leisure Connection.

And to make sure he fully understands customers’ needs, he is planning a number of hands-on activities at the Riverside Leisure Centre in New Market next week.

The Meet The Manager day will see Mr Evans work alongside staff offering free health checks, yoga taster sessions, aerobics classes, personal training, football and basketball.

He said: “I’m really looking forward to the Meet The Manager day and the opportunity to meet and greet our customers.

“It’ll be great to see you so please come down, say hello and let me know what you think about the service we offer. Sessions such as these offer our users the opportunity to really get to know the centre, its facilities and staff.

“I’m more than happy to deal with any questions and queries and it’ll be a fantastic chance to introduce some of our new classes.”

The event will take place on Thursday, from 11am to 3pm.
