  1. An outdoor gym is up and running in West Kingsdown thanks to the sporting legacy of the Paralympic Games Road Cycling.

    West Kingsdown hosted the road cycle races of the London 2012 Paralympic Games last summer and has received a lasting legacy in the form of the £54,000 investment.

    The outdoor gym is called an ‘AdiZone’ and has been built on Gamecock Meadow in West Kingsdown. It is hoped that this equipment will inspire local residents to get active and embrace the area’s Paralympic legacy by taking up sport.

    This investment was made up of £50,000 from Sport England’s Inspired Facilities Fund, £1,000 from West Kingsdown Parish Council and a grant of £3,000 from Sevenoaks District Council’s Big Community Fund.
    The all-weather sporting facility is designed to be open to all and boasts a range of equipment, including a full-sized ski machine, a smaller bike and cross-trainer for children, a dance area, basketball hoops and a variety of resistance apparatus.

    West Kingsdown Parish Council, in partnership with Sevenoaks District Council, made the successful grant application to Sport England earlier this year.

    Cllr Peter Fleming, Leader of Sevenoaks District Council, says:
    Lynda Harrison, Clerk to West Kingsdown Parish Council adds:
