Boxing champ Brian Rose cut the ribbon to officially open Blackpool’s new tourist attraction.
The Ascent trampoline centre at Marton has opened its doors creating 40 jobs and offering a new way to get fit and have fun in the resort.
Owner Alan Bowness said: “It was great to have Brian here to open the trampoline centre.
“He is fighting in London on April 9 at the O2 and I know he is interested in young people in Blackpool keeping fit.
“We are now fully open and after Easter we are hoping to tie up with local schools about fitness lessons andwith local youth groups. There is an important social element to fitness and it is good for mental health too.
“We always said that we wanted to get schools involved and the facilities here mean that they can have more than one person doing a particular activity at a time in their lessons.”
