FITNESS: Plans are afoot to build a new gym in a village park.

The Spencer Holland Recreation Ground in Potten End could be fitted with a new chest press, shoulder press or pull-up rack.

At a Potten End Parish Council meeting on Thursday, leaders said firm Caloo, of Boxted Farm, has offered them a 50 per cent discount for the project. The equipment would then cost £500 per unit.

Chairman Simon Barnard said: “It would enable them to send their clients to see their work in action.”

The council wants to buy six pieces of equipment, and will bid for sports grants to fund the project.
