An airport-funded new activity building will give people with disabilities the chance to get cycling.

The 4all Hangar at the Pavilion on the Park, in Eastleigh, is due to open this week thanks to a grant of £50,000 from Southampton Airport.

It will store specialist bicycles and is designed as a hub for developing work skills, independent living skills and recreation and leisure.

When it opens on Wednesday, it will mean better access to the adapted cycles for people with disabilities.

Jim Vaughan, chairman of the Eastleigh Youth Trust and the Pavilion on the Park, said: “With the new 4allHangar we can access our fleet of adapted cycles with ease, it will be easier to care for them, clean them and maintain them, and overall they will have a longer life span.”
