The Showfield Spectacular

Frome Town Council will be celebrating the launch of new outdoor fitness equipment at the Old Showfield on Saturday 3 September, with a range of free activities & games between 10am and 4pm.

The spectacular will officially launch the new fitness equipment which is going to be installed on the Showfield in early August – with expert advice and encouragement!

“It’s really exciting” said Emma Parker, the Council’s Community Projects Officer. “The new fitness equipment will be a great place to meet up with friends and have fun. It’s been designed so you can have a go whether you’re new to exercise, or you’re a regular gym-bunny!” added Emma. “We’re going to have people on hand to explain how to use the new equipment throughout the day – so this is a great chance to come and try it out.”

The event is also going to promote the benefits of a healthy lifestyle and simply enjoying being outdoors.

“We’ve got local sports clubs and health & wellbeing groups coming to the event, too” continued Emma. “So come and have a go at Zumba while pedalling a bike to create your own music, or try out self-defence; or summit the climbing wall!”

The event will also see a range of games to play including cricket, rounders and badminton; as well as school favourites like egg & spoon races; sack races; tug of war; and three-legged races.

There will also be general health advice, free health checks and talks on nutrition.
