Councillors and local residents attended the official opening of the facility at Cherry Close on Saturday (July 2).

Councillor David Salter, Chairman of Lichfield District Council, said: “This £25,000 installation has been achieved in a joint effort between Lichfield District Council and Cherry Orchard Gardening Services (COGS) using various grants, including £15,000 from the Government’s Pocket Parks fund.”

After the ribbon was cut, a team of experts led a training session with many of the young people who attended the event.

Regular parkour training workshops will start later this month. For more details email sportsdevelopment@lichfielddc.gov.uk.

Cllr Terry Finn, Chairman of COGS, said: “We know the local community will have great fun on the parkour wall and we hope it attracts more people to make use of the community centre and grounds.”
