Hi, I’m Greg Lumley, Centre Manager at Drake Circus.
For the past four years I’ve had the pleasure of managing Drake Circus. During my time here, I’ve witnessed Drake Circus become the leisure destination it is today. Popular by shoppers and diners, the centre is a showcase for British Land’s intelligent place making. It’s a place people prefer, no matter what they enjoy doing - a place with customers and community at its heart.
My family and I fell in love with the region very quickly after moving here. From Dartmoor - where we regularly walk our dogs - to the extensive surfing of the North Cornwall Coast, the area offers both natural beauty and a welcoming community.
The great outdoors of Devon has encouraged me to take up running - I have completed the Plymouth Half Marathon on multiple occasions - and this year I took it a step further by running the London Marathon for the first time. I was delighted to raise over £2,500for Sense – a charity for the Deaf and Blind.
The future looks bright for Drake Circus! The leisure scheme at Brettonside is due to start later this year; my team and I are enthusiastic to be involved in this new and exciting chapter. We look forward to continuing to evolve with the centre’s positive steps, and with the community it serves.
