  2. Do you know someone who deserves to be recognised for becoming more active?

    Nominations for Tameside Sports Trust’s annual sports awards need to be submitted by the end of July and organisers are expecting nominations to hit the 100 mark.

    The Annual Pride of Tameside Sports Awards has seven categories and the winners of the borough’s sports awards will go forward to represent Tameside at the Greater Manchester Sports Awards which will be held in November.  One of the categories is the changing lifestyle special recognition award.

    Last year’s winner Claire Curran made significant improvements to her health and well-being and as a result lost 7 stone!  She worked out in the pool and the gym at Ashton Pools almost every day and made positive changes to her diet – which was no mean fete considering that she works in the food industry as a chef and has to avoid daily temptations!

    Tamesiders have until July 31, 2014 to submit their nominations. Short-lists will be drawn up and those nominated on the short-list will be invited to the awards ceremony on September 12 at the Jubilee Hall in Dukinfield.

    Nomination forms can be downloaded from the Pride of Tameside website.http://www.prideoftameside.co.uk/2014/sports/

    Andy Dwyer, a service manager at Tameside Sports Trust who runs the awards scheme, said: “There are categories for professional sports people, coaches, backroom staff and administrators, but the awards also aim to recognise people who deserve recognition for the positive changes they’ve made to their lifestyle.”

  5. Sporting heroes’ time to shine

    THE countdown has started for Tameside’s sports fans to nominate their top coaches, teammates, volunteers and unsung heroes.

    Nominations for Tameside Sports Trust’s annual sports awards need to be submitted by the end of July and organisers are expecting nominations to hit the 100 mark.

    The Annual Pride of Tameside Sports Awards has seven categories and the winners of the borough’s sports awards will go forward to represent Tameside at the Greater Manchester Sports Awards which will be held in November.

    More than 30 sports were represented in last year’s Tameside nominations, including ten-pin bowling, triathlon and football.

    One of the 2013 Tameside winners, Georgia Taylor-Brown, a 19-year-old champion triathlete, went on to win the Greater Manchester Sports Achiever of the Year award.

    The seven categories for which people and clubs can be nominated are: coach of the year; sports achieve of the year; disabled sports achiever of the year; the Alex Williams volunteer of the year; unsung hero of the year; club of the year and the changing lifestyle special recognition award.

    Tamesiders have until July 31, 2014 to submit their nominations. Short-lists will be drawn up and those nominated on the short-list will be invited to the awards ceremony on September 12 at the Jubilee Hall in Dukinfield.

    Nomination forms can be downloaded from the Pride of Tameside website. http://www.prideoftameside.co.uk/2014/sports/

    Andy Dwyer, a service manager at Tameside Sports Trust who runs the awards scheme, said: “There are plenty of awards for professional sports people, coaches, backroom staff and administrators but it’s the people who play, train, coach and volunteer at grass roots level that deserve recognition.

    “It’s the passion, determination and dedication of people like those involved in sport in Tameside that generates the national sporting heroes of tomorrow. Georgia Taylor, last year’s winner is a great example of a young athlete who’s trained and coached locally and now performing on national and international sporting stages.”

  9. TAMESIDE SPORTS TRUST TO UNDERGO MAKEOVER

    Tameside Sports Trust - the not for profit charity - which operates Tameside Council’s leisure facilities is to undergo a makeover in which it will be rebranded “Active Tameside”. The rebrand will include updated activity programming, refurbishments, new uniforms, a new website, social media platforms and signage - all repackaged as “Active Tameside”. It is hoped that this rebrand will help towards increasing and sustaining physical activity levels in the Tameside area, which last year was branded the “UK’s heart disease capital” by The British Heart Foundation.

    Lyndsey Whiteside, Service Director at Tameside Sports Trust said, “The aim of the relaunch and rebranding of our facilities is to bring all our services under one umbrella. This will help with communication and make it easier for the people of Tameside to access and understand all the facilities and activities we have on offer. 

    Overall, we hope that this will increase the chances of delivering an uplift in physical activity levels in the borough overall.”

    Manchester-based Toast PR have been brought in to communicate the launch regionally and nationally.

    The new brand, Active Tameside will encompass Ashton Pools, The Copley Centre, Hyde Leisure Pool, Medlock Leisure Centre, Denton Pools, Dukinfield Pool, Oxford Park Community Sports Centre, Ken Ward Sports Centre and the Etherow Bowling & Activity Centre.

    The official Active Tameside launch event will take place at The Copley Centre in Stalybridge from 10am on Monday 28th July and is free to attend and will include free taster events, health checks, a family fun area and a photoshoot with some of the area’s most prolific young sporting heroes.
