lancashire Association of School Business Managers School Business Manager Conference

Thornton Sports accept invitation to School Business Manager Conference

It was a pleasure for us to be involved in yesterday’s Lancashire Association of School Business Managers (LASBM) Conference. The event took place at The Dunkenhalgh Hotel in Accrington and was attended by over 100 School Business Managers from the Lancashire area.

We are thankful to Jenny Goy, School Business Manager of Bacup & Rawtenstall Grammar School and also committee member of LASBM, who put our name forward to exhibit at the event. Following both installation of a new sports hall at the school in 2005, and resurfacing of their synthetic grass pitch just last year, Jenny is highly confident in recommending our services to other schools within the Lancashire area.

During the full day conference Thornton Sports also enjoyed meeting up with many other previous customers, who praised our recent installations. Schools in attendance who we’ve worked with within just the last 12 months included Fulwood Academy, Balshaw’s C of E High School & St Christopher’s CE High School.

Numerous School Business Managers attended the Thornton Sports stand to discuss their future planned sports surfacing projects. Advice was given regarding the suitability of different surface types and cost indications were provided. We look forward to speaking with them again in the future as their plans progress. Meanwhile congratulations go to Elizabeth Rimmer of St Anne Edgeside CE Primary School who won our Champagne Prize Draw.
