Professional background: I worked in Bury for 10 years using sport as a tool for community development and managing the exercise referral programme. As Physical Activity Development Manager at GreaterSport I developed relationships to support participation running, walking and links to health. I also worked with partners to develop the GM Moving Blueprint for physical activity and sport and am passionate about the way being more active can make a difference to people’s lives.
