Central Otago Mirror - - COOKING -

Lau­ren Moyes has joined Lakes Leisure as the new Com­mu­nity Pro­grammes Co­or­di­na­tor. She re­places Alana Tal­bot who orig­i­nally started with the Queen­stown Events Cen­tre in 2006 be­fore be­com­ing a part of the Lakes Leisure team on the com­pany’s in­cep­tion in 2008.

Orig­i­nally from Tau­ranga, Lau­ren is known to many in Queen­stown through her role as a guide for Ac­tive New Zealand where she has worked pe­ri­od­i­cally since 2005. Dur­ing this time Lau­ren also man­aged the Kokiri Lodge Out­door Ed­u­ca­tion Cen­tre and taught at Ric­car­ton High School.

Lau­ren’s has an ex­ten­sive re­cre­ation based teach­ing back­ground, a Di­ploma of Teach­ing and a Bach­e­lor of Phys­i­cal Ed­u­ca­tion mak­ing her an ideal per­son to fill this busy com­mu­nity fo­cused role.

Lakes Leisure CEO Fiona McKis­sock said the Com­mu­nity Pro­grammes Co­or­di­na­tor role was in­te­gral to Lakes Leisure’s achiev­ing its ob­jec­tives around con­tribut­ing to the health and well­be­ing of our wider com­mu­nity.

"The Com­mu­nity Pro­grammes Co­or­di­na­tor looks af­ter all of our com­mu­nity based pro­grammes that work to get our whole com­mu­nity ac­tive and en­gaged in re­cre­ation. Lau­ren will be work­ing a lot with chil­dren but we also run pro­grammes for the el­derly, mums and ba­bies and the over­weight with ex­cit­ing new pro­grammes for teens also in the pipe­line. The Leisurelys pro­gramme we run for the older folk is gain­ing mo­men­tum and the more we can do for these types of sec­tors in our com­mu­nity the more con­fi­dent I am that we are get­ting re­sults. Lau­ren is step­ping into a re­ally busy role.

"Lakes Leisure is com­mit­ted to de­liv­er­ing the best pos­si­ble sport, re­cre­ation and leisure ser­vices to our com­mu­nity and Lau­ren’s skills will be in­valu­able to our con­tin­u­ing to de­liver high qual­ity pro­grammes to our com­mu­nity in the fu­ture," she said.

Lau­ren will run all the com­mu­nity sports leagues, pro­grammes in­clud­ing the school hol­i­day pro­gramme, All Sorts and Su­per Sports, The Leisurelys, ten­nis for kids and rock climb­ing cour­ses.
