The Centre contracted Stephen Ferguson contracted to undertake the work.

Haltwhistle Town councillor Terry Christie said: "There is money in a fund left over from the original track work and ringfenced for improvements along with a grant from the Community chest, NCC. The town council are paying the balance for the work.

He also adds: "As a Town Council we are delighted that we were able to carry out this work and to see the BMX track restored to its former glory.
