It was all about health and fitness at Rylands Civic Centre on Thursday afternoon as ward 46 councillor Aslam Cassiem, in conjunction with Gatesville Neighbourhood Watch, launched their latest project.

The Healthy Living Programme forms part of Cassiem’s aim to bring beneficial activities for youth in the area. Several items were handed over to The Gatesville Club, and forms part of Cassiem’s ward’s allocation­.

“This community hall will be a safe and beneficial place for youth to hang around at during the school holidays. Despite the usual board games offered, we donated gym equipment as part of our launch which includes 20 gym mats, weights, balance pods, steps, gym towels, gym bottles, foam rollers, skipping ropes, gym balls and pumps,” explains Cassiem.

“These items were dropped off at the local community hall in Rylands and will stay there to be used by seniors, youth and children at the Gatesville Club, to implement healthy living programmes going forward.”
