EVERYONE Active has been awarded a new contract with Barking and Dagenham Council to manage its leisure centres across the borough for the next 10 years.
The announcement comes as Barking and Dagenham Council aims to get more residents into shape and tackle the borough’s poor health rates.
As part of this drive, the council has tasked Everyone Active with increasing activity levels within the centres by 35 per cent, and bringing in 2m visitors a year to their leisure centres and athletics stadium.
Everyone Active will be managing the Abbey and Beacontree Heath Leisure Centres and the Jim Peters Stadium from September 4. As part of the contract, all existing staff at the centres will be kept on by the operator.
Managing director of Everyone Active David Bibby said: “It is a really exciting time for sports and leisure, and we are delighted to have been chosen by the council to use our extensive skills and experience to get more people active.
