Park’s outdoor gym open

AN outdoor gym has opened in a Long Eaton park giving visitors the chance to keep fit.

Ten pieces of exercise equipment are now in place on a fitness trail in West Park, thanks to a successful bid to the Big Lottery Fund’s Community Spaces programme.

Each piece of equipment can be used unsupervised by anyone from the age of 12 and has clear instructions on how to exercise.

Lottery funding for the trail, which was officially opened by BBC East Midlands sports commentator Mark Shardlow, was matched by Erewash Borough Council.
