This issue includes interviews with Andy King, GM Active chair and Dave Wright, founder of technology company Myzone.

In the main interview, King explains how a partnership model involving 12 public sector facility operators across Greater Manchester has achieved excellent results in bringing the regions major players together and to help highlight the role physical activity can play in a preventative healthcare model.

The “Growing the Game” article in Issue 4 looks at swimming and the challenges the sport faces – from falling participation numbers and a lack of swimming teachers to skyrocketing operating costs.

Other articles include a round up of recently completed synthetic sports pitch projects and sustainable sports projects – with plenty of SAPCA members featured on the pages!
