Our partner event, held on 2nd March, was a celebration of the work done this far to get Greater Manchester more active and focused on how our time is now to really drive the physical activity agenda together across the region.

The event saw presentations from a number of key people within the physical activity landscape. 

  • Mike Diaper, Director of Community Sport at Sport England, explained the national physical activity agenda and how Greater Manchester is leading the way. 
  • Steven Pleasant MBE, CEO of Tameside Council, spoke about the unique position Greater Manchester holds as a result of the Memorandum of Understanding with Sport England and our ability to scale up the work we have already done.
  • Eamonn O'Rourke, GreaterSport Director, thanked Yvonne Harrison and Chris Brindley on behalf of the board for their commitment to GreaterSport during their tenures with the organisation.

The event saw out outgoing Chair and CEO, Chris Brindley and Yvonne Harrison, thank partners for their support, as well as them passing on the baton to their replacements, Mike Perls and Sara Tomkins, who shared their future ambitions with the room.
