Humfrey the Lion, Fort Regent's former mascot, is back, sporting
gym clothes and muscles to complement Fort Regent's primary focus
as a sports and leisure centre.
Humfrey's comeback coincided with Fort for All day.It raised
awareness of the variety of sporting clubs and associations that
use Fort Regent. Around 40 clubs, associations and businesses
offered free taster sessions to show Islanders the range of
activities available at the venue.
Despite being back on Island for less than a week, Humfrey has
already been spotted having a cup of tea in the Fort Regent Piazza
with centre manager, Jo Mousdale. Mrs Mousdale said: 'Humfrey was a
popular figure at Fort Regent and was well known around the Island.
Most recently, Humfrey has been spending time in the gym and has a
new outfit, which is far more appropriate for Fort Regent's focus
on sporting activities. Fort for All day was a celebration of the
sports clubs and activities that take place at the Fort, so we are
delighted that Humfrey made a comeback for this special event.'
