Students at two Lynchburg elementary schools have a new place to exercise.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held Wednesday afternoon to celebrate the opening of a new gymnasium at Bedford Hills Elementary School.

Standalone gyms were built at Bedford Hills and Sheffield elementary schools recently. Until now, physical education classes at both schools were held in the schools' cafeterias.

"We are so excited that our children will have a safe, weather-free opportunity to play," said Bedford Hills Elementary School principal Sherri Steele.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony for Sheffield's new gym will be held Thursday.
