A number of volunteers signed-up to help get the facilities ready and the Management Committee anticipates that many in the local community will come together to participate in this endeavour. The meeting also discussed aspects of Youth representation and participation and how important it will be for every age group to have their say about how they envision the development of this community hub. People who don’t want to miss this opportunity should contact OLE through the website: ochilleisureenterprises.org.uk
The next OLE members meeting will be held at the Alva Pool Complex on Tuesday 12th June 2012 7pm.
The OLE Management Committee meeting that followed the member’s meeting, took a decision to establish two interim consultant positions to further OLE’s operational and developmental plans. The operational position will set up the business processes and get the facilities ready for our first customers when the doors open. The business development position will connect with 3rd sector funding bodies and assist with aspects of business development including community involvement.
The Alva Pool Complex is part of a growing national movement in community-owned and managed Swimming and Sports Facilities. OLE recently sent a delegation to the first meeting of this group at the very successful Atlantis Community Leisure Complex in Oban.
