“We’ll also be looking for fitness instructors for classes we want to run in the evenings.

“We’ll be working with local groups to give access for underprivileged kids. It’s all part of giving back to the community, which is what we want to do.

“We’re going to be quite stringent on safety too.”

The building has now been cleared and work has begun on adding the neccesary facilities.

Alan added: “We have the trades in just now and the park builders should be in next week.

“It should be quite a quick process.

“We’re looking forward to the opening.”
