Preston City Trampoline Club has completed another stage of its expansion, and was opened by the city Mayor.
Nick Pomfret visited the club, which will soon be renamed ‘Active Life Community Services’ and opened the new expansion. The new addition to the club includes a Rebound Room which was built with the help of volunteers at the Princes’ Trust, and student plasterers at Preston College.
The room, an expansion to the studio premises, is designed to provide rebound therapy for disability participants, fitness sessions, dance classes and preschool activities. This came about after hearing feedback from users, and includes a design to allow users with a disability to feel the “freedom” of a trampoline.
The club has already been appointed by British Gymnastics as their North West I’m In Hub Club, as a result of its facilities designed for disabled visitors.
Club manager, Fiona Robson said, “Trampolining will always be at the heart of our club but we feel there is a need out there for us to provide a community hub in our local area. It was fantastic to see the young adults from the Princes Trust and Preston’s College taking a real pride in the work they carried out and we had a fantastic opening attended by the local mayor, councillors, and representatives from the college and Princess trust along with a number of our own supporters.
“We have always prioritised our disability users in our development and are really excited to share the smiles in our new room.”
