MEET OUR TRUSTEES
Chair of Trustees
Chris became involved with the Centre when his eldest son, Alex and subsequently his second son, Lucas joined classes. Alex has gone on to represent GB at the World Age Games in DMT. Chris is the founder owner of Oakley Property and brings a great wealth of experience to the board.
“I became a trustee to support my sister Stella. I listened to her many years ago when her trampoline centre was just an idea in her head and she began searching for a building high enough!
It is wonderful to be a part of it now, seeing how the Centre supports everyone, providing a focus and enthusiasm for not only elite performers but those just there for fun. In a time where looking after our mental health and well-being is vital, Uckfield is lucky to have the Centre and a safe place for all. Trampolining makes you happy, it’s hard to bounce and not smile!”
I first became involved in the Centre when my two sons started attending; Dylan is a member of the junior squads for tumble and trampolining and Oscar is part of the senior tumble squad. I have witnessed the high standards and the high quality of coaching coupled with the nurturing and support that the gymnasts receive and am delighted to have the opportunity to support and contribute to this as a Trustee.
I have taught for over 20 years in sixth form education, specialising in Economics and Business and now hold Director level responsibilities in the College.
Beth is Abi’s Mum and the Centre has been part of her life for over 10 years now. Through both hers and Abi’s experiences, she is able to see the Centre through a parent, volunteer, staff member and gymnast’s perspective. She has volunteered for many years for Lewes Swimming Club and has many years experience in bookkeeping and admin.
