SAPCA to Work with Saje Impact

18 Weeks and Counting

18 Weeks and Counting

I will be 55 in just 18 weeks time. For me life will be able to take another step into the next season in my life.

When this happens I am hoping to make greater use of this site for my musings on life and the world around! I have one big interview in May which might put these plans back a little bit (about 4 years) but either way there will be more time for travel and writing.

Stay tuned.

Seasons in Life - The Next one for Andy and Saje Impact

There are seasons to life I believe. Well it certainly feels like that as I start September 201Changes in 2018!8.


A number of Sport Board positions come to their natural end after several years of voluntary service - The Sport & Recreation Alliance , Special Olympic and CIMSPA . I want to thank everybody who has helped and supported me during the last 8 years since leaving Parliament (losing the election!) and welcoming me into the world of sport.

It has been another fascinating learning curve working with a sector I have passion for and trying to bring a fresh perspective and influence practise and policy. I will continue to do this but in different ways over the next 'season', mainly through The Sports Think Tank and through SAJEIMPACT LTD where I have generated a series of partnerships to bring the best people I have worked with to the sector - like David Slemen Sport:80 Services Limited . As always Loughborough University Loughborough University London will play a large part of what I do.

I will announce a few new NED positions too over the coming weeks.

I have always had a passion for my home county so I will be doing more economic growth work in Leicestershire through the LLEP too

Here is to the new season. Even if that includes retiring formally from Birstall RFC!

SAPCA to Work with Saje Impact

SAPCA to Work with Saje Impact

SAPCA (The Sports and Play Construction Association ) is the latest organisation to start working with Saje Impact as it looks to raise its profile and marketing offer to its members by engaging with its external stakeholders.

SAPCA – the trade association that represents businesses committed to raising the quality standards of all sports, physical activity, recreation and play facilities that are designed, built and maintained across the UK.

They help funders, owners, operators and users avoid the hoops, hurdles and high jumps of sport facility funding, construction, management and development.

With over 250 corporate members all have a direct involvement in the development of sports and play facilities – from contractors, manufacturers and suppliers to consultants, test laboratories, sports governing bodies and related organisations.

Andy Reed said "Our sports sector is so wide and varied and sometimes some important elements get left out of decision making and funding. Sports Businesses make a great contribution to the sector and to the British economy and I am looking forward to working with SAPCA in raising the standards of construction in the sector as policy increasingly understands the needs for greater and modern facilities as part of the good sports mix for consumers. I am also keen to help the sector innovate around new technology and the integration of new ideas

With the Governments new sports strategy and a great focus from NGBs on facilities this is a good time for a better partnership in the sector with SAPCA.
