Peter Windatt’s name was put forward as a possible new director/trustee of the above organisation by Doug Iles of local firm Friday Legal (who has now become chairman of the trust). Peter has now been accepted as a member of the board (it is a company limited by guarantee and a registered charity - the role is unpaid). The following describes what the trust is all about:-
We are a progressive charitable company that seeks to inspire people to have a healthy and active lifestyle. We run four centres within Northampton with over 10,000 members and around 1 million visits per annum. Our gyms are equipped with the best equipment money can buy and membership gives you so much more than our competitors. We are always looking to improve the service we offer and aim to make Northampton a great place to live.
Peter was able to comment “I train at the Duston site, teaching Kempo Karate, twice a week and was heavily involved in getting it raised from the ruins following 12 + years of closure (it is the former British Timken Sports and Social Club). I am delighted to be able to take part in helping to manage what are tremendous facilities for the health .and wellbeing of the people of Northampton.”
The other sites are at Danes Camp, The Mounts, Lings Forum and Lings Cinema.
