Our top news 2021. Part 4: October to December

By on December 31, 2021 0

Along with the high-profile issues the industry has faced this year, it is sad to have to reflect on the fact that this year has been one of too many cases of crime and security breaches.

While information on such matters will inevitably generate interest and clicks, it is an advertisement that we have had to cover with stories relating to theft and fraud as well as abuse, especially sexual abuse.

Sadly, 2021 has also seen too many accidents and safety incidents, culminating in the pre-Christmas deaths of six children on a bouncy castle at a Tasmanian school.

I wasn’t deeply saddened by the loss these families suffered, but I was really, really angry that it could have happened.

There have been enough jumping castle experiences taking flight and enough advice given that a fatal incident (I won’t call it an accident as it suggests it was not preventable) because it did. shouldn’t happen.

Serious questions need to be asked of the school and whoever managed and supplied the inflatable and all the weight of the law enforced, with officials unable to hide behind ignorance, liquidated entities and / or government bailouts.

It’s also worth remembering some of those we’ve lost this year, from important industry numbers to those at the heart of the industry.

Here it is worth remembering:

With apologies to all who missed.

On a less morbid note, this quarter also saw remarkable alliances in activity, exercise, fitness, leisure and sport with the creation of the new Alliance Active Australia and Fitness Australia relaunched as AUSactive, revitalizing its activities to fight against the country’s inactivity crisis. .

Remarkably, both initiatives were announced on the same day!

And beyond this assessment of the year, the team of Australasian recreation management wish you a happy new year and look forward to a safe, healthy and prosperous year 2022 for all of us.
