Now that the floods have subsided we can all start planning for the Summer and warmer, longer evenings.

As a Council, we are keen to achieve a grant from Sport England to install outdoor, adult gym equipment. This would be sited at the Playing Fields, free of charge, for people of various abilities and all would be welcome to use the apparatus.

You may have seen similar schemes elsewhere; I have copied a link below for just such equipment in York. York are about to install more sets across the city.

We would be keen to gauge from Cawood villagers the level of interest there would be in such a scheme. There would be no better feedback than the comments we hope you will leave on FB Cawood Folk

As this would be funded via a grant, there is no financial impact upon the village whatsoever. We would also stress that there is currently no guarantee that we would be awarded the grant anyway. Positive feedback, however, would certainly bolster our application.

Thank you.
