Gym Equipment Now Installed!

Outdoor Gym Equipment at Walls Bridge

 

(Update 24.03.2020) The gym equipment was installed on Thursday 19 March; sadly the cement had only just had time to cure before the playground was closed today in accordance with UK Government's latest instructions for the Covid-19 emergency.

We are very pleased with the quality of the equipment and installation and thank the supplier, Broxap Ltd, for their speedy service.  The Council would also like to acknowledge the contribution of Councillor Sue Morris for leading this project. 

We hope that everyone will have the opportunity to enjoy the new equipment safely before too many weeks have passed.

 

(Update 20.01.2020) This consultation closed on 12 January 2020.  

Thank you to everyone who completed a survey, and special thanks to the Village Hall and Shop for hosting the forms and collection boxes and encouraging people to join in!  

A total of 108 people took part and Sky Stepper, Pull Down Power Push, Rower and Squat Push emerged as clear favourites.  Click here to view results.

The Council will take this project forward in the coming months. 

Background

Following Llanymynech’s success in the Montgomeryshire Village Award and the feedback received at the celebratory evening in February 2019, Carreghofa Community Council is exploring schemes to enhance the amenities of our area. One suggestion was the provision of adult outdoor gym equipment to complement the children’s playground facilities at Walls Bridge.

We invited additional feedback regarding specific items residents would most like to have installed, and launched a survey so that people could give their views. Survey forms were available from Llanymynech Village Shop and Village Hall, or online.
