A future rugby star opened an extension to a school’s fitness suite.

Howard Packman, a Northampton Saints and England under-20 rugby player, cut the ribbon at the extension to the Manor School fitness suite in Raunds with Dave Campney, who was awarded an honorary gym membership after using the school’s facilities for almost 20 years.

The extension was paid for by Olympic legacy funding from Sport England’s Inspired Facilities Fund, the Midlands Co-operative and the academy. Principal Linda Brooks said: “I am delighted with the new facility and I look forward to our students and local community taking full advantage of them.”
