Ryan Harris, deputy centre manager, said: “We are delighted to have installed our fantastic mural to celebrate the national and local hero, Captain Sir Tom Moore, as well as all of our heroes across Bedford.

"With the launch of the mural and opening of Energie Fitness Gym, it was brilliant to see an abundance of positivity within the centre after a few difficult months.

"We are so proud of the people of Bedford, and it is wonderful to give something back to the town in return for their understanding and support, not just through recent times, but always.”
