Alliance Leisure Becomes an Approved APSE Partner

Alliance Leisure has joined an exclusive list of APSE approved partners selected from a range of suppliers up and down the country.

As an award-winning leisure development company Alliance has delivered over 220 leisure facilities since its founder and Chief Executive Sarah Watts started the company in 1999.  Those projects represent an investment value of over £300m in leisure infrastructure with projects varying from outdoor parks and play spaces, to large-scale refurbishments and new-build leisure centres.  Alliance Leisure are also the approved development partner for the UK Leisure Framework, which is managed by Denbighshire Leisure, and provides a pre-procured route to market for operators looking to develop their facilities.

John Leaver, Head of Marketing at Alliance Leisure, commented: “Working with over 70 local councils every year and having attended many APSE events, we knew the time was right to apply to become an APSE partner and explore other opportunities together.  I’m sure we can bring some innovative thinking in transforming leisure facilities and share the successful projects we’ve been delivering across the UK.”

Also this month, as construction works continue on projects being delivered by Alliance Leisure in Harrogate and Knaresborough, Alliance shared some of the community engagement projects being delivered by their construction partner, ISG.

In Harrogate, ISG is working closely with the Little Explorer’s Day Nursery next door to the construction site to enhance the experience of the children in their care. In addition to financing and installing a large, new shed so the nursery can secure its outdoor play equipment, ISG has also re-laid bark and sand areas to improve usability and appeal.

A new four-seater stroller has also been financed so the nursery teams can safety take the children out and about into the community to expose them to new sensory and learning experiences. Nursery artwork is also being displayed on site hording to add some visible interest and pumpkins are being donated to support Halloween activities.
