Villagers can get in shape

Have your say

A NEW community gym is helping villagers get in shape.

The West Rainton Community Fitness Suite has opened in the Jubilee Hall, South Street.

The gym is run by volunteers as part of Durham County Council’s Legacy Gym scheme, which supports the provision of small, state-of-the-art fitness venues in the heart of communities.

The scheme is aimed at encouraging more people to get active, enjoy exercise and improve their health.

For further information, call into the gym during opening hours (Monday to Friday, 9.15am to 11.30am and 5.30pm to 8.30pm), contact the council on 03000 282 012 or email
