York-based property developer North Star has become our second sponsor, helping us to get people in Heworth moving

We're delighted to announce that North Star have come on board and sponsored two of our Move Zone listings in the Heworth area; Stray Road Park and Glen Gardens.

A 'Move Zone' is the name we give to an outdoor gym and/or open space where people, of all ages and abilities, can exercise for free. We've been working hard to create a range of workouts at each site, providing video workouts for people to follow which demonstrate how to exercise safely and effectively using the equipment.

We provide regular free pop-up sessions at Glen Gardens and having a local sponsor will enable these sessions to keep running.

A spokesperson for North Star said:

"As a socially responsible local developer, it’s important to us that we not only engage with, but also support the communities we’re in. Our Gasworks development will have a large focus on mental and physical wellbeing for our residents and the wider community – including resident welfare sessions, a trim trail and large green space - so we were really keen to get behind an excellent initiative like Move the Masses.”
