Getting fitter and healthier has now beeen made easier, with the opening of the town’s first ever outdoor gym at Hailsham Recreation Ground in Western Road on in September 2012!
Since the project was agreed by the Town Council last year, the Youth Council organised a small working party to look at the design of the proposed facility, carry out a community survey on the benefits of installing an outdoor gym, and seek funding opportunities available.
Youth Mayor at the time Chelsie McIntosh said, “The outdoor gym is a great facility for people to use and will also help to improve relations and perceptions between younger and older people in the community, whilst encouraging them to engage more with one another in the process.”
The state-of-the-art equipment, which is
suitable for anyone over 12 years and for all abilities, includes an air skier, cross country skier, double rower, seated leg-press and a push-up station.
