Improving Wath running track

Wath running club

Wath Ward councillors and the Council's Green Spaces team have funded improvements to the running track in Wath.

Councillors in Wath used some of their capital budget to help make this happen.

Wath Running Club wanted the running track to be improved. Thanks to the funding, the running track has been resurfaced and widened.

This work supports the Wath Ward priority of improving and enhancing community facilities and green spaces, to ensure that they are well used and accessible to all.
