Bootcamp comes to Brickfield Park

Brickfield Bootcamp in Brickfield Park is a free activity open to all adults who want to boost their fitness level.

It is funded through Get Set Local and St Luke’s Cares and is run by a qualified Fitness instructor, Rob Docherty. Rob caters for all levels of fitness and is used to running bootcamps through his experience at Be Military Fit (previously known as British Military Fitness).

It runs on a Monday evening from 7-8pm until the beginning of August and you can sign up at

This initiative is part of an ongoing campaign by local residents to ensure that Brickfield Park is well used and well loved by people living next to it. The facelift (of a year ago) bringing play equipment to the green space has been a huge success and so residents are keen to ensure the good vibes continue with activities in the park.

Friends of Brickfield Park also try to do litter picks in the park also on a Monday evening – so if you wanted to join them for this please do come along to Brickfield Park and get involved. For more information contact Tania Carlisle on 07917 157830.
