On Saturday, March 10th despite the wet weather, local residents turned out in full to the official grand opening of the brand-new Sherburn outdoor gym. Chairman and Vice-Chairman of the Selby District Council, Cllr Judith Chilvers and Cllr David Buckle joined the Castleford Tigers’ Mascot, JT to officially open the new outdoor gym.
Refreshments were available throughout the event which was located in the Eversley Park Centre. After the official opening, photos were taken with JT, and the attendees were invited to try out their new village gym equipment.
Everyone then headed back to the Eversley Park Centre where Bethany Lauren Dance School (pictured above) put on a fantastic dance performance for all to enjoy which was subsequently followed by lunch and refreshments.
The new outdoor gym facility is free to use and will be open to anyone over the age of fourteen. The Sherburn outdoor gym includes disabled-friendly equipment as well as traditional exercise equipment.
