A brand new state of the art fitness facility is now up and running at NCW as the new multigym, Fit4Purpose, has opened for business!

Players from the Worcester Warriors, the Mayor of Worcester and student Fizzy had the honour of cutting the ribbon to officially open the new multigym at NCW, Fit4Purpose.

A result of a high profile fundraising event the project was a conversion of the old Stables block on the campus, which had been unused for many years. A high quality conversion and a contemporary extension has see the provision of a fully equipped gym, male and female changing rooms and a well being room on the first floor which is to be used for physio therapy and by other NCW staff.

In the future the facility will be available for use by other community groups, and in particular for people who are visually impaired.

We are very grateful to all those who have supported the project - we are all improving our fitness by the day!
