Harry Hill's Winston, Works Out in The Borough

One of Harry Hill’s much loved knitted characters, Winston Stimson, will be making a special appearance at the Bedford International Athletic Stadium on Monday 29th March, as he attends the 9.30-10.30am, 50+ aerobics session.

The knitted star is making an appearance at the over 50’s aerobics class as his 61 year-old creator, Linda Stimson, is a regular attendee. The fitness class is meant for those individuals over 50 years of age; however an exception has been made in order for young Winston to attend.

Councillor Barry Huckle, portfolio holder for Arts and Leisure, at Bedford Borough Council said: “Hopefully Winston’s presence will further draw to the fact that taking part in fitness activities as one gets older is not only healthy, but also provides plenty of opportunity to socialise with others, and have great fun.”

Linda, from Shortstown, made Winston Stimson as part of a school project on the Second World War for her grandson George Haynes, but when the pair saw the competition to find the best home-made knitted creation on the Saturday night show ‘TV Burp’ they knew Winston could be a winner. Winston continues to prove to be a favourite with viewers.
