It was amazing, this a joint venture with the College/University, but sadly no "Wave" to go with it. As this was something that Mark and his family travelled from Bolton, enjoyed as the previous swimming baths and leisure centre Waves as it known had the machine that created a wave just like on the beach but covered. Pictured left to right are Heath Brandwood(Membership and Retention manager),GSM Mark Hill,and Richard Brown (Leisure, Health and Wellbeing Partnership manager) Thanks guys for the tour as we said brilliant and it will a hit with the locals and those near by
World Book Day at Balderstone St Leonard Well just a coincidence that I bumped into an old friend David H in the town centre a few weeks ago and we had a good chat, surprised to see me walking with crutches, reminiscing the fun that we had when I first met him and his family at their business. "So where are you now that you've left the trade?" "I'm at Asda Blackburn as Community Life Champion", explaining of my role,and was pleased as he had a job for me, subject to the school approving it. Yes you've got it Book reading and just happens to fall in time as they were looking for a male to do this as they've never had this offered to them. Armed with the equipment supplied by HQ and I arrived, planned the day with teacher Jane Race. I was taken back as they were well behaved talking very quite, polite when asking questions and good listeners. When it came to the assembly all uniformed on arrival and departing back to their classes. They all loved the reading, and I suggested that I would be more than pleased to return before the next year and help with whatever I could help with. During the reading break had the opportunity to view their school work. I was so taken back that they all did joined handwriting!!!! I was told that once a week they carry this out as part of their school activity, giving them ahead start, neat. Thanks was the cry when I was leaving as do come again, I think that I'll be going back before the year is out.
