Outdoor keep-fit initiative

MOVES are underway to install fun and healthy equipment for adults and young people in Pegswood.

A budget for an outdoor gym in Welfare Park has been agreed by the parish council and the authority is hoping to have it ready for use by the summer.

The proposed equipment includes air walkers, tai chi wheels and a double rower. The fixtures would benefit a wide range of users, including people in wheelchairs.

Meanwhile, talks are continuing with Groundwork North East about proposed works to reinstate the willow feature in the Juliet Oakley Activity Area.
