Active Lancashire announced today that Lesley Lloyd will be stepping down as Chair of our rapidly growing charity, which promotes active lifestyles as a way to improving physical and mental wellbeing.
Lesley has confirmed that she will be stepping down from the role of Chair at the end of her four-year term but will remain as Chair until a successor is found and a smooth handover complete.
Adrian Leather, Chief Executive of Active Lancashire, said: “I would like to thank Lesley for her energy and commitment which has made a huge contribution to Active Lancashire. Lesley’s leadership and support over the past four years, has enabled us to become a more professional and aspirational organisation, providing higher quality services to an increasing number of the most deprived people in Lancashire, helping them to become more active and enjoy healthy and productive lifestyles. Through the leadership of the Board and the recent development of our new strategy, Lesley has also help us become fit for the future.”
Lesley Lloyd, outgoing Chair of Active Lancashire, said: “Active Lancashire is a truly remarkable organisation, employing the most talented and dedicated staff. It has been a pleasure to work with them over the past four years and I am filled with immense pride in our shared achievements.
"I leave the organisation in a strong position, ready to deliver the new ten-year strategy with a series of innovative projects in the pipeline which are truly ground breaking and should help thousands of people benefit from the advantages a more active lifestyle can bring. Further, these initiatives will put Active Lancashire on the map and be recognised as a beacon for transformation and innovation nationally.”
