Fresh Expressions of Gym

A church on Exmoor has stepped in following the closure of a local gym, and is hosting 'bring and share' gymn sessions 5 times a week, with kit brought in from people's homes. Great example of big society stepping in where business has failed, and of a church knowing its place in a community.

The company who ran the gym say they are planning a re-launch in September, but based on their figures, it may be hard to make a local gym financially viable. Local folk, judging by the comments and campaign site, aren't impressed. In a sparsely populated area (as with church hosted post offices) maybe this is a different and more viable way of making facilities available to the community.
