The centre, which is managed by Everyone Active on behalf of Strat- ford District Council, was handed the gong at the 2017 Flame Awards, the health and fitness sector’s largest celebration of innovation and excellence.

The award recognises the quality of the centre’s facilities and its commitment to improving health and wellbeing in the local community.

Stratford Leisure Centre underwent an extensive refurbishment in 2015, followed by a recent £250,000 upgrade to its fitness suite.

Gareth Wagg, Everyone Active’s contract manager at the centre, said: “There were some great centres on the shortlist, so it is a huge achievement to have won and a testament to the team’s tireless hard work.

“All of our colleagues strive to give customers the best service and experience possible, and we’re over the moon that their efforts have been recognised by others in the sector.”

Everyone Active’s contract with Stratford District Council is the operator’s longest established partnership, making 2017 a significant year for Stratford Leisure Centre to receive the award.

The company has run the district’s leisure centres since 1991 and was recently awarded the contract to run those owned by Warwick District Council.
