After a positive initial response, plans are in motion to bring a community gym to the residents of Mitchel Troy.

The idea of bringing a community gym to Mitchel Story’s village hall was started several weeks ago by Claire Knight, who has received a good response.As it stands, there will only be room for two people to use the gym at any one time, but Claire will set up a WhatsApp group so that those who want to use the gym can liaise with each other. She has already cleared the meeting room in the village hall so that the equipment that she has already acquired can be set up. The plan is to develop a community gym entirely out of donated equipment.Whilst the village hall had to be closed during the pandemic, it is now fully open for business with guidelines for organisers drawn up so that it can be used safely. Details for those wishing to hire the hall can obtained from the hall’s booking secretary Derek Ringer on [email protected]. Those wishing to use or donate to the gym can get in touch with Claire Knight on [email protected]
