Burton Mail - - News -

WINSHILL Con­ser­va­tive coun­cil­lors on East Stafford­shire Bor­ough Coun­cil have been suc­cess­ful in see­ing their plans for out­door gym equip­ment on New­ton Road Park come to fruition.

Opened last Satur­day in line with the rest of the bor­ough’s parks, they say the gym equip­ment is a great ad­di­tion to the fa­cil­i­ties avail­able in­clud­ing some of the lat­est items which will be unique to Stafford­shire.

The equip­ment has been in­stalled along­side the bas­ket­ball and ten­nis courts which have also been resur­faced and are due to be re-fenced soon.

Coun­cil­lor Ed­ward Barker, cab­i­net mem­ber for leisure and tourism, said: “We have long felt the need to add fur­ther fa­cil­i­ties on New­ton Road park thereby in­creas­ing the health and well­be­ing of all our res­i­dents.

“I am de­lighted that we can in­vest in such fan­tas­tic equip­ment to help main­tain the fit­ness and health of ev­ery­one.

“Coun­cil­lors Faulkner, Metcalfe and Wile­man are pleased to be in­stru­men­tal in the in­stal­la­tion.”
