A letter from our Chairperson
I am writing to you as Members, Users and Supporters of Montsaye Community Sports Centre.
I would like to introduce myself as the Chairperson of the Montsaye Academy Sports Centre Management Committee. This Committee is made up of representatives from the Academy, The Sports Centre Management Team and Volunteer “Directors” from the Sports Centre Community, of which I am one, and Stefan Nycz, another regular Gym user is the other. As part of our role we are tasked with making sure that all members and users have a community facility they can be proud of and encourage others to use.
Despite the fact that MCSC (Montsaye Community Sports Centre) shares its name with the Academy, it is a separate enterprise with costs like any other sporting facility, and this is where you as the members, users and supporters are key to its on-going success.
From our last meeting there were a number of key issues we would like members to consider;
1. Feedback and Communication
3. Improvements to MCSC
We would like to implement a clear and frank dialogue between MCSC and its members and users right away and will shortly be sending out a questionnaire requesting your honest and frank feedback, good or bad. The link will also be on the MCSC Facebook page
As a community lead enterprise, we want to keep the facilities in the best possible condition, but this inevitably requires funding. Fundraising therefore is key, and will provide MCSC with a fresh stream of income generated from the local Community and members, to enhance their experience of using the facilities. Fun and diverse fundraising initiatives will be available for all members and the community to be involved in throughout the year and we welcome any ideas you may have. A full list of monthly events will be available to all members once we have your feedback
We are proposing that any monies raised from charitable events and fundraising will be used solely to provide better facilities for the members and users of the MCSC. We are sure that from the feedback forms you will give us your views, on what you as members and users consider to be the best ways to improve your experience of using your community facility.
To kick start the campaign we have a couple of events taking place we would very much like you to support. Firstly we have a number of Members running the Rothwell 10 k on 6th July and the Desborough 10K on the 18th July who can be sponsored, and I will be once again doing all classes in 1 week in the Fitness suite in the near future
We have set up a fundraising page where you can show your support and we look forward to hearing from you soon. https://www.gofundme.com/montsaye-community-sports-centre
