Exercise Equipment in Victoria Park

Rotary helps people keep fit during lockdown


This equipment is safe for both the young and the elderly

It was 2015 when the Rotary Club of Royal Leamington Spa came up with the idea to help Leamington's local residents keep fit by installing exercise equipment in Victoria Park. Rotary agreed to put £5,000 towards the project, our twin Rotary Club of Bruhl in Germany contributed £750 towards the funding, we just needed a sponsor to provide the balance

Brian Bassett approached Alistair Clark, managing director of AC Lloyd Homes, who said he was happy to support the club's idea and agreed the company would fund the balance of £20,000 to complete the project

The Rotary Club is extremely grateful for the support both with the development of the project and financial from the Warwick District Council

The outdoor gym equipment has now been installed in Leamington's Victoria Park near the skate-board park and a next to the Princes Drive car park. The equipment, although first thought were for the older generation to keep fit, it is used constantly by youngsters
