A charity treadmill trek to boost the funds of Cancer Research UK will be held at Cotswold Leisure Cirencester later this month.

On Tuesday November 25th, staff and members at the Tetbury Road leisure centre will all take a turn on one of the gym’s treadmills in an attempt to keep it running, non-stop, from 6.30am to 10pm.

Both the staff and members of the centre will be able to book one of 62 slots on the treadmill in 15-minute intervals, before handing over to a work colleague or friend when their time is up.

Staff will also wear pink accessories – such as wigs, sweat-bands, and caps – to promote the fund-raising theme of the day, and donation buckets will be available on the reception desk and in the gym so the public can contribute.

Leisure centre staff hope to raise £250 for the charity from the event.

If you would like to take part in the treadmill challenge or would like more information on any of the leisure centre’s courses or events, please contact the centre on 01285 654057.

Morris Leslie plant hire company rises from losing millions to investing £70m

Perthshire plant hire giant Morris Leslie was hit hard by the Covid 19 pandemic, however the company was struggling before that because of Brexit. Six months before Covid 19 shut down building sites and locked down the UK the company Morris Leslie has already experienced tough times. Uncertainty because of Brexit had already caused building projects to be shut down or paused causing a much lower demand for plant hires and sales. This slowdown had caused an oversupply of construction equipment meaning more competition and so reduced prices. Then Covid 19 hit and the group’s vehicle auctions and Sunday car boot market were shut down.
