Portway Testimonials

'We are writing to thank you for your support today with the launch of the Black Country satellite club programme at Portway. There is no doubt that it would not have been the success it was without your help and support, both with the build-up and today. We are sure that there were times when you thought “not something else!” but you always said “no problem – I’ll sort that out”. You were calm, always had a smile and a solution to a problem - you cannot imagine how much this helps the team. All the planning team have commented about the professional manner in which you undertook all the tasks asked of you and the way in which you managed the staff and ensured that everything ran so smoothly today. The launch is a major event for us and the support we receive from the staff at the venue is absolutely crucial to the overall success of the event. Thank you.'  Jayne Piller - Club Links Officer - June 2014.

'I would like to say a personal thank you for your support and commitment at the Disability Event, held 7 March at Portway Lifestyle Centre. The event was an opportunity for us to bring staff together to share experiences, ideas and to celebrate the positive contribution that employees with a disability bring to the organisation. The fun packed agenda allowed us to have inspirational speakers, interactive workshops and also to be able to showcase the fully accessible facilities at Portway Lifestyle Centre. We have received very positive feedback from participants, showing that the event was a real success in delivering such a positive message as well as personal learning for the participants that attended on the day.' Melanie Dudley - Director of Improvement and Efficiency - Sandwell Council March 2014.

'It was great to work with you again and run another successful competition. The centre is fully inclusive and has been built on the basis to cater for people with disabilities, this makes choosing the centre to run events, competitions, and community sessions a no brainer. This is because no additional planning needs to done to ensure that all the participants can access the centre, there’s adequate access and parking, toilet facilities and changing all of which make it easier for the disabled people we engage to have an enjoyable time.'
Marc Scott - Development Officer – Clubs - Boccia England - Feb 2014

Thank you so much for your support, very kind regards.'
