Launch of Bodyshapers


In Newhaven local business woman Angela Plowman took voluntary redundancy in March this year thinking that with her years of experience she would be able to walk straight in to a new job. This was not the case however so she set about starting her own business BodyShapers of Sussex a ladies only ‘non gym’ and she chose Basepoint’s Newhaven Enterprise Centre for her new business’ home. Just 3 months later the official launch took place with many of her family of members, Norman Baker MP, the Mayor of Newhaven Graham Amy and Centre Manager Claire Murray being there in full support.

When asked why Angela felt so passionately about starting a business in Newhaven the answer was simple “I walk around our town and see businesses closing and the shops being left empty this is our town and we are stronger and better than that and I want to be in a position to able to offer employment to local people and be a key part of our regeneration” the Mayor of Newhaven Graham Amy added “ We are delighted that BodyShapers have come to our Town, the organisation looks very professional and my wife was so impressed with the facilities and the friendliness of the new business she has become a member" . Angela’s business is already making a difference to peoples lifestyle, levels of mobility and fitness and the latest news is that her first member has just completed 12 sessions and at her review she has lost a massive 13inches and over 7lbs in weight, WOW and well done!
