Senior site manager, Simon Bunting, from ISG’s UK Construction business in the North West, has been doing his bit for local health workers. 

Simon and the team have been working on a leisure centre project for Alliance Leisure in North Wales, and community health teams are also based at the centre, from where they arrange their visits out to people in the local area. 

Gwawr Job-Davies, deputy head of physiotherapist central area, and Amy Evans, from the community nursing team, work for the North Wales NHS and share an office at the leisure centre, which continued to operate during the refit. 

Simon was in regular contact, keen to support the important work that the NHS teams continue to undertake during the COVID-19 pandemic, and to say a heartfelt thank you.

Simon secured an order of Force 8 reusable masks to provide to nurses who were awaiting PPE to protect them when going into the community to carry out their visits, and on receipt of the masks, he received a note of thanks from Gwawr and Amy, noting that they ‘were really, really appreciated’.

Simon also provided a demonstration for Gwawr and Amy on their use, cleaning and maintenance.

The project, being delivered on behalf of Conwy County Borough Council, has now been handed over, and saw the team refit the fitness suite at Colwyn Leisure Centre, along with the installation of a new floor at the Performance Gym which forms part of the wider Eirias Park sports complex.

This is one of over 25 projects completed with Alliance Leisure and was delivered using the UK Leisure Framework (UKLF).

The UKLF is a development partner framework which allows Local Authorities to engage with Alliance Leisure to develop their facilities from refurbishments such as the Colwyn project to new builds.
