Keep fit fans, children and interested members of the public gathered on West Green on Thursday evening to check out The Great Outdoor Gym Company’s fitness equipment, which the Town Council and Pocklington Play Area Group hope to install.   The general reaction of those attending was overwhelmingly positive and we believe the equipment would be well used if installed.

People were asked for their views on the plan, and also asked for their ideas to make the most of the space in the green.  Suggestions include lighting, a rain shelter, tennis courts, table tennis tables, keep fit trails, basket ball hoops, equipment for younger children and better fencing.

All ideas will be considered to be used in the council’s planning for next year, and funding applications are being prepared to secure finances for (hopefully) five pieces of equipment.gordon-1 gordon-2 kids-1 kids-2
