Torridge District Council is setting up Active Torridge (a local authority trading company) to run a range of sports and leisure services in Torridge.

Our intention is that the new company will not just be an operator, but will be a catalyst in transforming enjoyment and participation in sport and recreation and making a real difference to people's lives.

We are at the stage of setting up the management and governance structure and have in place a Board of Directors and a Non-Executive Director.
