Official Opening of the new Athletics Jumping Area

Jun 10, 2019




In the grand opening ceremony of Vandyke’s new jumping area the Mayor of Leighton Buzzard cut the ribbon to declare the new facility open.

Mr David Killick (Chairman of Leighton Buzzard Athletics Club, LBAC) had worked tirelessly to gain the finance to make this area a reality. In partnership with Vandyke the excellent new facility was created. LBAC are a fantastic partner to the school and Mr Turney (Team Leader of PE at Vandyke) gave recognition of the work they do with so many Vandyke students and beyond, to encourage a love of athletics and participation in sport outside of curriculum time. Mr Turney added, ‘Thanks to David and his extended team this project will now benefit all of our current and future students over many years. Having the best possible facilities helps to encourage participation and in the long term we aim for all students to lead healthy and active lifestyles. These facilities will inspire our next generation of athletes.’ 

If you or your company could help with sponsorship and assisting the PE department in the future please contact Mr Turney,, to discuss further.
