Million dollar renovation sparks new era for PCYC

December 16, 2017 by  

The million dollar Penrith PCYC renovation has been officially opened.

The event was presided over by Rotary, police and community leaders including Dominic Teakle chief executive PCYC, local MP Stuart Ayres and Youth Commander Superintendent David Scrimgeour, who declared the venue open for business.

The major revamp is the first in 45 years since the facility was initially established on the Station Street site.

The transformation, according to manager Natalie Face, has brought with it modern facilities and given the entire building a bright and refreshing new look.

Improvements were administered across the board from the roof to the gym and change rooms providing many new features to highlight on future flyer printing to promote the PCYC.

Working out just got more exciting too, she said, with a host of new equipment in what has become a most impressive gym as well as a brand new boxing ring complete with upper cut, speed balls and heavy bags.

Meanwhile the basketball area’s air flow has been upgraded and the addition of individual air conditioning into each room has provided the opportunity for temperature control.

New mats have been introduced into the large group fitness and martial arts area and there are now 20 bikes in the new spin room.

At the official opening Mr Teakle said the renovation was a real credit to all involved and that the work would assist greatly in enabling the PCYC to keep on delivering programmes to the community and in particular, youth at risk.
