Residents in a quiet area of Larkholme in Fleetwood say their fears of noise and 
disruption from a controversial outdoor gym have started to become an unwelcome reality.

Plans for the £35,000 outdoor facility were approved last month – despite an 
effort by unhappy residents to scrap the scheme, following a 60-name petition.

People living on Roundway complained that they were not consulted by Wyre Council over its plans for the gym on a field near their homes and voiced fears it could prove a magnet for vandals and unruly youths.
