A WINCHESTER community group has received funding to host outdoor fitness sessions.

Abbotts Barton Community Group has received around £500 to pay for exercise classes in the park, which will be used to pay for a trainer.

The classes will be free, and it is hoped they will run twice-weekly for six weeks.

Sylke Krämer, of the group, said: “When we heard about we thought it was the best possible use of a grant because it gets people out of their houses. We are hoping the weather is good!”

The money was awarded as part of Winchester City Council’s small grants fund.

It is hoped classes will start in the first week of September.
