Welwyn Garden City leisure park chief executive to step down

A WGC leisure complex will say goodbye to its chief executive later this month.

Penny Arnold, from Gosling Sports Park, will be leaving the Stanborough Road complex next week, after two-and-a-half years in charge.

Penny will be leaving to join Fusion Lifestyle, based in London, after being headhunted by the company.

“I wasn’t really looking for a job, but it was too good an opportunity,” said Ms Arnold, 39.

“I’ve really enjoyed it here, the people are lovely, and so is WGC. I’ll be very sad to leave.

A new chief executive is yet to be chosen, but Ms Arnold said an announcement was expected in “the next couple of weeks”.
