Coun­cil in a spin over new ad­di­tion

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - What’s On -

More peo­ple can spin their way fit af­ter a new space was opened in the Stour Cen­tre.

Thanks to a £270,000 in­vest­ment from Ash­ford Bor­ough Coun­cil (ABC) and £100,000 from Ash­ford Leisure Trust four times as many spin cy­cle classes can now be held.

The rib­bon was cut on the new ded­i­cated stu­dio by deputy mayor Cllr Win­ston Michael paving the way for ad­di­tional ses­sions, in­clud­ing new vir­tual classes, at the cen­tre’s Con­tours Gym.

Cllr Jes­samy Blan­ford, ABC port­fo­lio holder for leisure, said: “The new fa­cil­ity is fan­tas­tic and means Ash­ford’s pop­u­la­tion can ben­e­fit from the much-im­proved health and well­be­ing of­fer at the Stour Cen­tre.”

Wayne Hodg­son, chair­man of Ash­ford Leisure Trust, added: “This en­ables us to quadru­ple the num­ber of ses­sions, will help us in­crease the sus­tain­abil­ity of the ever-pop­u­lar spin cy­cle classes and of­fers our cus­tomers an in­creased op­tion and va­ri­ety.”
