Councillors are really fit for office thanks to Donaghadee outdoor gym!

gym 4 600It was a pleasure to work with Mark Brooks and others to bring the new Donaghadee outdoor gym  to the Commons in Donaghadee. And even better to see it being used by so many local people already!

Donaghadee outdoor gymThis new Donaghadee outdoor gym at the Commons is a great way for us all to improve our fitness levels. Using the most modern of techniques, the easy to use system is perfect for residents of all ages and fitness levels to work every muscle in their body.

And situated as it is on the Commons, the view  from the Donaghadee outdoor gym over the Irish Sea is a fantastic addition to the experience.

Donaghadee outdoor gymFor those who are already in training for the Donaghadee 5K Run to the Tower that we’re bringing back to the Festival this year (Friday 12th August @7pm leaving from the Harbour!), a run along the Commons coupled with stops at the outdoor gym will be invaluable.

Donaghadee outdoor gymI would encourage everybody to have a go on the equipment. It’s fun, easy to use and effective. And as chair of the Donaghadee Town Steering Group, I am really pleased that we have been able to add this to the growing list of improvements we are adding to our town.

Particular thanks must also be extended to other Councillors who serve on the Steering Group and Council Officer Lee-Ann Gwynne who was ultimately responsible for delivering the gym.

And there’s so much more to come!
