The Association of Play Industries (API) held its Annual General Meeting on the 26 April 2018 and appointed Fenland Leisure Products Managing Director, Andrew Sparrow, onto the Executive Committee as their new Vice Chair.

API Chair Mark Hardy says: “Andrew has been an integral part of the API Executive team for four years and we are delighted that he is now our Vice Chair. He brings with him a wealth of experience and knowledge of the play industry and we are looking forward to further benefitting from his expertise.”

Andrew Sparrow says: “I’ve worked within the play industry for the past 25 years since forming Fenland Leisure. We have been members of the API for the past nine years and have reaped some real benefits of being involved with the voice of the UK play industry.  I’m very keen to  help to promote API at the grass roots of our industry, both in education and local authorities as well as being involved with lobbying at higher levels to improve UK play provision.”

In addition the API welcomes Vicki Braithwaite, Pennine Playgrounds for a further term of office as Executive Officer.
