The Mayor of Watton Beryl Bunning has asked the community to respect and enjoy the new adult fitness equipment installed at two play parks.
Apparatus including a ski stepper and pull-up pole have been placed at the Bridle Road play area and a freestyler has been installed at the Lovell Garden.
However within a week of the Bridle Road outdoor gym equipment being fixed into place a sign, explaining what the equipment is and how it can be used, was damaged.
Mrs Bunning said: 'It makes us mad. But we are hoping people will respect and enjoy it. It is there for them to enjoy and not to lose. We are delighted to bring it to Watton.'
A grant of more than £7,754 was given by Breckland Council, from their Outdoor Sport and Play Fund, to Watton Town Council.
