    Paul, I will be away on holiday and will miss this meeting. My plan/ idea for the future of Whitchurch has been published on the Town Web site.
    Ed. note: that plan/idea article is HERE.

    I won’t be able to attend tonight, but I do have a suggestion – some outdoor fitness equipment placed in the parks/open spaces around town.
    These come in all styles, so some wooden ones for the meadow would blend in better than the metal type, but the metal type would look fine next to the skate park for example. There are plenty of suppliers of this type of equipment, but we have recently been in Southsea and they have a very impressive set that was supplied by a company called – Denfit and the equipment was called Fitpoint.

    Fresh-air fitness is another company that supply this sort of equipment as well as a company called Wickstead. I’m not affiliated to any of these companies, just purely putting their names so people can go off and “google” them in case they do not understand what is meant by “outdoor fitness equipment”

    These would be great if they were spread around the town as people could then jog or cycle between them as part of an overall work out.
