Centre helps man walk for first time in nine years!

Shaun Stretton had not walked for nine years before he started using facilities at The Portway Lifestyle Centre, in Oldbury, which opens officially today.

Scott Parish, one of the centre's trainers, has been speaking about Shaun's remarkable progress:

"He's done really well, he's walked, I think, now around about 110 metres! And before it was with a frame, but now he's walking pretty much by himself."
