Scattered all around town are a series of exercise stations that have been installed just in time for the second Healthy and Happy Wellness Challenge.

Blayney Shire Mayor, Scott Ferguson said the new equipment will offer affordable ways to motivate people of all ages across Blayney and surrounding villages look after their body and mind.

“The success of the initial program last year, helped Blayney Shire Council secure $15,000 in funding from the NSW Office of Preventive Health and the National Heart Foundation and through the Blayney Village Enhancement Program, an additional $15,000 was provided to enable the purchase of 12 new pieces of outdoor fitness equipment,” he said.

Blayney pool has re-opened.

This equipment has now been installed around Blayney, connected by a series of 3 new walking trails at distances of 1km, 3km, 5km starting at CentrePoint to motivate people on their health journey.

This week has also seen the reopening of the pool within the CentrePoint Sports and Leisure Centre.

Centre manager Paul Masters said that work on the air management system should be completed within two weeks.

“The fans are arriving here on Tuesday the 18th of September and installation should be completed soon after,” he said.
