Banking on community fitness

When the Staff and Directors of the Braidwood Community Bank were discussing what the Bank could do for the community to mark its tenth anniversary, staff member Mrs Helen Farley suggested the erection of an outdoor gym. Because good health and fitness are central to the life of all ages within our community, this idea was quickly accepted and the project was commenced - ably led by Helen.

With the support of our local Council a site was selected in Bicentennial Park and expert advice sourced in the selection of a number of pieces of equipment for their ability to improve the fitness of varying parts of the body.

The Staff and Board of Directors of our Braidwood Community Bank are very pleased to announce that the gym is now finished and ready to enjoy in its attractive setting in the park overlooking Monkittee Creek. The project cost $38,000.00 and will provide a wonderful facility for Braidwood.

In order to assist members of the community to maxamise the benefit of the equipment the Bank has arranged for local fitness trainer Cassie Moran to demonstrate the correct and safe use of the pieces that make up the gym. Cassie is fully qualified and is looking forward to sharing her expertise with the people of her home town.

Cassie will be available at the equipment on Monday 19 November at 10:00am and again on Thursday 22 November at 6:00pm. She will not only demonstrate how to use each piece but will assist individuals who wish to try them out.

It is hoped that people of all ages will attend and enjoy these sessions. Gather a group of friend together and come on down to the park. Bring the whole family including Grandma and Grandpa. Enjoy being out in the fresh air and knowing you are making the effort to improve your fitness level. Just think of the Gym Fees you are saving!

Happy exercising Braidwood from your Community Bank.
