A NEW athletics club for Welshpool is on its way.

The new club is the brainchild of one of the town's most esteemed athletes with Welsh shot put legend and British bobsled star Adele Nicoll leading the initiative through her academy.

The club is open for ages five and older and will meet at Welshpool High School every Tuesday from 6-7pm with sessions costing £4 each.


Ages nine  and over are asked to register via email at WelshpoolAC@outlook.com while ages 5-9 are asked to contact adele.nicoll.academy@outlook.com

A club spokesman said: "This has been in the making for a long time. We are so happy to finally be able to get it underway."
