FOLLOWING months upon months of red tape, the much-loved Muswellbrook PCYC have finally begun building a facility that has been in the pipeline for years.
The gymnastics centre is now under construction and set to be completed in September, when it will officially open.
A grant was approved by Bengalla last year, but a difficult approval process has set back the project.
However, with dirt being moved and foundations being laid, PCYC manager De-anne Douglas was visibly excited about what they can achieve with the new centre.
"We've got a new program that will start once we're in the shed, so currently we're just running on the Saturday but once the shed's finished construction we're going to be able to expand it to include all the different things including gymnastics, tumbling, team gym and even adult classes," she said.
Bengalla community relations specialist Fiona Hartin said the company had not hesitance assisting when they saw the proposal.
"From our perspective when the application for the community development came through, it ticked all the boxes of things we like to do within the community," she stated.
"So access to sport as well as our involvement with the PCYC which has been ongoing for a very long period of time, so it was a 'no-brainer' to get involved."
Ms Hartin also expressed her relief in seeing work finally get underway, after mountains of paperwork had caused delays in the past year.
"I couldn't be happier to see it up and going and it's great to see in 2019 that it's becoming a reality, there's been a bit of process to get it happening and we couldn't be happier to see the machinery working," she said.
Despite the humble operations at the local club, they have managed to recruit international help in the form of Denmark national Nikolai Vorup Sass-Petersen who will be one of the gymnastics coaches.
The new facility is set to be opened on Wednesday, September 25 and will play host to a number of events in the future, with other towns from around the region set to visit the centre.
