Over 500 riders, including Olympians Liam Killeen and Ian Field, are pre-entered for the 3rd round of the British Cycling HSBC National Trophy Cyclo Cross, which takes place at the fantastic Shrewsbury Sports Village this weekend;  11th &12th November.

Due to the huge surge of interest of Cyclo Cross seen nationally the National Trophy in Shrewsbury is split over two days allowing the creation of individual races for Veteran Women, Veteran 40+ Men and Veteran 50+ Men allowing 100 riders to enter each category. "Moving some races to Saturday allows us to also give separate races to the Junior Men and Elite Women. This has got to be a good move after our World Championship success where GB placed 3 riders on the podium in January 2017" says organiser Dave Mellor "Allowing more riders to experience National level racing, rather than restricting field sizes is a really positive move."

The course used regularly at National level and of course the venue of the infamously muddy National Championships in 2016 is one of the best in the country and recognition for that must in no small part go to George Watkins and his team. Whilst the elevation is pan flat the mix of tarmac, grass and woodland provides a course where there is literally no chance to rest and the technical aspects can really catch out tired riders as we saw in the Nationals where Helen Wyman looked to have the race won only to slip on the last grassy bank and to be overhauled by Nicki Brammeier for one of the most exciting of races. "We've had a great team of parents out strimming the grass banking around the cycle circuit which has allowed us to make subtle changes to the adverse camber sections which have always been spectator favourites. We've also taken the race into the Green Triangle a favourite training section of the Club youngsters and this should add a new dimension to the course and allow the commentating team headed up by Matt Payne to see more of the action" says Course Director, George Watkins.

Moving to a two day format of course brings it's challenges in a public venue, there will be some late night strip down in the woods to enable the early morning dog walkers unrestricted access and then early morning reinstatement by George Watkins and his team but one of the hardest jobs is getting enough volunteers to marshal and enable the race runs safely. Volunteer coordinator Sarah Barton luckily has local clubs Paramaount CRC, Hafren CC and of course West Midlands Cyclo Cross League to rely on as well as Mid Shropshire Wheelers stalwarts. "I'm really grateful for the many volunteers, over 100 that give up their time so freely and have been in touch. It's not really feasible for me to personally go and ask each person to help, we put out requests via the club email and Facebook pages and I thank the pro-active members who reply and volunteer without being asked personally. It's so rewarding putting on a great event that is appreciated by the riders and a simple thank you from riders gives our volunteers such a buzz" says Sarah.

Mid Shropshire Wheelers are represented in the youth categories by Ben Tomlinson, Ryan Greaves, Daphne Jones and Lucy Hart, in the Veterans by Andy Jones and in the Elite Men, Ewan Grivell-Mellor. All of these riders are looking for good positions rather than podiums at this stage, all new to National level racing other than Ewan Grivell-Mellor who is looking to balance finishing college and starting full time work and training. "It's been tough" says Ewan "I've finished my A-levels and not really sure what I want to do but I have a second passion other than cycling of baking. I've been working nights in an artisan bakery, 2am to 10am and that has been a real challenge. I've just started a day job now and so hopefully I will start to feel less tired and the form will come." 

Elite racing will see Olympian Liam Killeen and Ian Field challenged by riders from the US and Belgium and series leader Beth Crumpton by Belgian riders. As this is an Internationally sanctioned race we could see more continental riders arrive in Shrewsbury along with the riders who have already confirmed they will be racing. 

Racing starts at 12 noon on Saturday with Sunday's start at 10am with a 2 minutes silence for Remembrance at 11am. Entry is free to spectators at the Shrewsbury Sports Village, overflow parking is at the Sundorne Road Medical Centre and food and drink readily available from the excellent Sports Village Cafe and outside caterers, Podium Catering, DrinkUp Coffee and Real Belgian Fries.  
 

We look forward to seeing you there.

National Fitness Day - Wednesday 9th September 2015

National Fitness Day is the biggest and most visible annual celebration of physical activity of the year. It is the day to celebrate the role that physical activity plays across the UK - come and join us!

Shrewsbury Sports Village will be hosting free exercise classes in aid of the National Fitness Day between 11:00 and 15:00.  Come along and trial Body Balance.
 


Get Revved Up as RPM Comes to Shrewsbury Sports Village

This summer, Shrewsbury Sports Village and Oswestry Leisure Centre have teamed up with Les Mills™ to offer a new range of workout classes.  The popular brand of classes includes Body Pump, Body Balance and Body Attack.  On 4th August, the much anticipated cycling-craze RPM will be launched at both sites.

RPM is an indoor cycling workout to rhythm of powerful music.  Taking place in the brand new spin studio at the Sports Village, instructors will take participants though a moderate to high intensity workout enabling them to burn 675 calories in just 45 minutes!  Great for increasing cardiovascular fitness, burning fat and improving the tone and shape of legs, hips and bum.
The introduction of the new classes has involved a thorough review of the class timetables by the qualified fitness instructors at both centres to ensure a good mix of high and lower energy classes available throughout the day for all ages and abilities.

Andy Mottram, Fitness Manager for the Shropshire Community Leisure Trust Limited said  “We wanted to offer the local community an alternative and effective way to exercise other than just going to the gym.  These classes are great for keeping active, getting fit and losing weight as part of an all-round workout as well as a great way to meet new people."

Leisure Centre Improvements

It’s well over a year now since Shropshire Council appointed Shropshire Community Leisure Trust, working with managing agent Serco Leisure, to manage five leisure centres across the county, as part of a new approach to the delivery of leisure activities, and so much progress has been made!

Here is an overview of the improvements made:

  • Each of the five centres has benefitted from £1.2 million worth of investment in terms of facilities and equipment. This includes the fitness suite refurbishments at Market Drayton, Shrewsbury Sports Village and Oswestry Leisure Centre. The Quarry has benefitted from shower and lighting upgrades and the introduction of direct debit payments for swimming lessons across the contract has been introduced to make life easier and increase payment options for parents.
     
  • Plans for continued investment into improving facilities include a funding bid which has been secured with Shropshire Council for £250,000 to redevelop the Market Drayton changing rooms in 2014.
     
  • Opening hours were extended at the leisure centres making the facilities even more accessible to the local community. Shrewsbury Sports Village now opens from 6.00am weekdays, Market Drayton Swimming & Fitness Centre from 6.30am weekdays and Oswestry Leisure Centre from 6.30am on Mondays, Wednesday and Fridays.
     
  • To mark these achievements, friends and family were invited to the 1 year anniversary Open Day on 1st August to take part in a variety of FREE activities at all of our centres.

Our mission in Shropshire is a simple one - to provide active and healthy lifestyles for all, in a safe, warm, clean, friendly, fun environment for the local community, at an affordable cost.

Shropshire Community Leisure Trust celebrates first anniversary with community open day

July 2013

Shropshire Community Leisure Trust (SCLT) are hosting a fun and free Open Day for the local community on Thursday 1st August to celebrate its first anniversary of managing five of the county’s leisure centres on behalf of Shropshire Council, namely:

  • Market Drayton Swimming Centre;
  • Oswestry Leisure Centre;
  • Shrewsbury Sports Village and Indoor Bowls Hall;
  • Whitchurch Swimming Centre; and
  • The Quarry Fitness and Swimming Centre in Shrewsbury

A new approach

The 10 year contract, which commenced on 1st August 2012, heralded a new approach to service delivery in the county and SCLT, in partnership with managing agent, Serco and Shropshire Council and has made a number of improvements to services in the past year.

Each of the five centres have benefitted from £1.2 million worth of investment in terms of facilities and equipment. This includes the fitness suite refurbishments at Market Drayton, Shrewsbury Sports Village and Oswestry Leisure Centre. The Quarry has benefitted from shower and lighting upgrades and the introduction of direct debit payments for swimming lessons across the contract has been introduced to make life easier and increase payment options for parents.

Plans for continued investment into improving facilities include a funding bid which has been secured with Shropshire Council for £250,000 to redevelop Market Drayton changing rooms in 2013/14.

Opening hours were extended at the leisure centres making the facilities even more accessible to the local community. Shrewsbury Sports Village now opens from 6.00am weekdays, Market Drayton Swimming & Fitness Centre from 6.30am weekdays and Oswestry Leisure Centre from 6.30am on Mondays,Wednesday and Fridays.

These improvements’ resulted in increased patronage, particularly with the ‘health and fitness’ membership which has increased from just over 1,000 to over 3,500 in just 12 months.

Open Day

To mark these achievements, friends and family are invited to the Open Day and take part in a variety of FREE activities which will be taking place at each of the five centres. This includes, workout taster classes and "Have a go" sports hall games including Badminton and Table Tennis. 

In addition, there is the chance to win a one year health & fitness membership and one term of swimming lessons via our Facebook pages, GymIn Shrops and SwimIn Shrops.

Brian Taylor,Chairman of Shropshire Community Leisure Trust commented: “We are delighted by how much progress has been made in the past year. The huge amount of investment in the facilities has already seen large increases in patronage and the creation of 10new jobs. The Open Days at the facilities are the perfect opportunity to come along and see the changes first hand and we very much look forward to celebrating with the local community on 1st August.”

Shropshire Community Leisure Trust’s mission is a simple one – to provide active and healthy lifestyles for all, in a safe, warm, clean, friendly, fun environment for the local community, at an affordable cost.

Our Jamie just keeps going!

Jamie Bryant – Contract Manager for our leisure contract in Shropshire and previously Project Manager is clearly inspiration. Having broken his back following a climbing accident sixteen years ago Jamie has made an incredible recovery through just sheer guts and determination and a lot of support from his wife Nicky to achieve some remarkable results in a number of events this year

Challenges Jamie has completed this year include:-

Brecon Ultra marathon – May -  42 mile ultra mountain marathon over the Brecon Beacons, climbing the famous Peny Fan twice during the race. Jamie finished in 11 hours

Scottish coast to coast – September 2012 - 105 miles across Scotland in one day (through the Scottish Highlands from Inverness to Glencoe) by foot along mountain trails, mountain biking along quiet country (very hilly) lanes and single track trails and kayaking. Jamie finished in 13 hours, of the 850 starters Jamie was just outside top 200.

Jamie undertakes his training in all weathers and all hours of the day. If you see someone running at you with a headlamp at 5am in the morning, look out it could be Jamie.

Long Mynd Hike – October - 50 mile running race across the 9 biggest hills in Shropshire covering over 8,000 feet of climbing. This race is run through the night and you have to navigate throughout. Jamie completed this 14 hours and 51 minutes, despite going wrong twice, still finishing in the top 100

After all events Jamie was back at work the next working day, albeit not walking particularly on some occasions

Jamie is currently training for an attempt at cycling John O Groats to Lands End (Easter 2013) as fast as he can ( target of 7 days) and then the CCC (a 100km mountain marathon in the French alps in August 2013 (described as one of the toughest 1 day foot races in the world). Jamie has already qualified for this race by completing the above 2 races this year.

Training is now part of Jamie’s life, for example he is cycling to North Devon (230 miles) in October half term (with his family travelling down by car). Jamie also spends time with his wife and children running and cycling up and down mountains in the Snowdonia National Park and Shropshire hills at weekends.

Why does he do it? Jamie originally started training again after reading an article about his accident and putting on too much weight due to lifestyle he was leading (rubbish food, too much alcohol and not enough quality exercise). Details of Jamie’s accident are set out below:

In March 1996 whilst serving with 45 Commando Royal Marines, Jamie was involved in a serious climbing accident, this accident resulted in him suffering a broken back (crushed 1st Lumber), and 2 broken legs. Subsequent operations saw a metal rod inserted into his back to fuse his first lumber between his second lumber and 12th Thorasic spine. A further metal rod was inserted in his right knee down to his ankle and his left leg was in a pot for more weeks than he can remember. All metal work remains to this day.

 Despite intensive physiotherapy from the team at the military rehab centre at Headley Court and the Rehab Team at the Commando Training Centre Royal Marines, it was evident that he would never return to active duty so was medically discharged in January 1998.  Jamie was told by the head of physiotherapy for the Navy, 2 key things, he would always walk with a limp, and ne would never run again.

Jamie still suffers with traumatic arthritis in both my ankles and back, resulting in daily pain. The pain is only eased by exercise. 

Inspirational or what!
