A destination like no other
Paul Scanes is owner and manager of AJ Cycles, an independent bicycle shop in Rushden Lakes.
“AJ Cycles is a local business, so when the opportunity came to move to Rushden Lakes we seized it. It’s an exciting development as there is so much leisure alongside the retail. For a cycle business it’s the perfect fit. Since moving to Rushden Lakes our hugely increased footfall has helped our business go from strength to strength and the great location – easily accessible by bike through a network of cycle paths, and with many miles of protected wetlands to explore on the doorstep – means our bicycle hire business has really taken off.”Visit AJ Cycles
Hayley has been with The Crown Estate for six years, the first four years working on the Central London portfolio, and for the last two years as the Senior Asset Manager for Rushden Lakes, responsible for delivering the growth of the shopping park.
“I’ve got the best job on one of our best assets – to help Rushden Lakes fulfill its great potential. I do that by creating the perfect blend of retail and leisure so that Rushden Lakes becomes an irresistible all-day destination for the local community as well as attracting visitors from further afield. It’s about mixing strong national brands with some really interesting independents, and making sure we make the most of all the natural beauty the adjoining countryside has to offer.”
