A playground designed just for adults has been officially opened at the Styx Community Centre in Guernsey.

The £10,000 facility, in St Pierre du Bois, was installed after the funds were raised by users of the centre and members of Age Concern Guernsey.

Michael Horley, from Age Concern, said the aim was to encourage light exercise among older people.

He said he was amazed how many members who normally did little exercise had already given the equipment a go.
