The deputy Mayor of St Edmundsbury, Christoper Spicer, was in attendance as Bury St Edmunds’ Kuk Sool Won club unveiled their brand new training space last week.
With the help of 3space, an innovative charity which in partnership with landlords and leaseholders offers organisations temporary free of charge access to otherwise empty properties, the traditional martial arts club has opened a space in Bury’s Cornhill Walk Shopping Centre.
Offering work shops and demonstrations to help raise money for charity, the club, which has been running in Bury for more than 25 years, hopes to build on it’s membership, which boasts 121 members in total, 70 of which being children.
Richard Jones, head instructor, took the opportunity to speak of his gratitude to those involved in the move.
“I have to thank 3Space for making this fantastic opportunity a possibility and hall manager Chrissy Harrold for her help in allowing us to move into the Cornhill,” he said.
“We have to also give a special thanks to the deputy major for taking time to be part of the grand opening.
“We’ve been trying to find somewhere to set up and with this move. We have a base until November, which is great.”
