Bondholder JJ Public Relations has been appointed by fellow Marketing Derby Bondholder Clean Slate to raise its profile across the Midlands and East Anglia.

JJPR is headed by Sarah Jenkin-Jones, a former Derby Telegraph journalist with more than 25 years’ experience in the PR industry.

Clean Slate Project Manager Clair Wood added: “With on-going expansion, the time is right to raise our profile amongst the business community in the Midlands, South Yorkshire and East Anglia. JJPR’s media contacts and high level of customer service made them the natural choice for this campaign.”

Lonsdale picks up demand from Moorways

Bondholder Lonsdale Swimming & Sports Trust is stepping up its recruitment of swimming teachers to cope with the increased demand for school and public lessons with the impending closure of Moorways pool.

We are now at full capacity and our immediate priority is to recruit more swimming teachers to cope with the extra demand
— Ian Cotter, Chair of Lonsdale Trust

The charitable Trust owns Lonsdale Pool in Mickleover and also runs Gayton Pool in Littleover on behalf of Derby City Council. It is also hoping to replace Lonsdale Pool with a new £4 million facility as soon as another local 1.5 acre site can be secured.

The Trust currently employs 50 staff including 19 teachers who handle lessons for more than 1,400 children and adults a week at a wide variety of sessions at the two pools.

Ian Cotter, Chair of Lonsdale Trust, explained: "We have seen an increase in the number of parents contact using wanting their children to start swimming lessons or to transfer from Moorways. Consequently, we are now at full capacity and our immediate priority is to recruit more swimming teachers to cope with the extra demand."
