Work has started at Kettering’s athletics track ready for the 2014 season.
The work includes relocating the throwing cage and shot put to another area within the inner field and the provision of new sand pit covers. The new areas will include fixings for people with disabilities.
Cash for the £70,000 project at the home of Kettering Town Harriers has been funded entirely by external funding.
Parkwood Leisure Limited manages the athletics track, synthetic pitch and changing pavilion for Kettering Council.
Bill Bailey, of Kettering Town Harriers, said: “We are continually looking how to develop the club and this scheme will make this one of the best athletic facilities for disability athletics in the region. The next capital scheme to complete our vision for the track is to install floodlighting which will allow training in all disciplines of athletics throughout the year.”
