Stratford District Council build new 'trim trail'

Ian Hughes 1st Dec, 2016

STRATFORD District Council’s Hodgson Green Children’s Trim Trail project has won a £12,000 grant after finishing top in the in store voting in Tesco’s Bags of Help initiative.

The council is looking to install a trim trail, slide and swing at the green on Hodgsons Road. The trim trail will include a rope tunnel, stepping logs, a frame, zig zags, climbing nets, balancing beams, wobble walkway and waterlilies balance pods.

Other improvements including marking out a football pitch, repainting the youth shelter and repairing kerbing.

Council community spokesman Coun Mike Brain said: “This is brilliant news and I would like to thank all those that voted for this project. Our recent consultation with local residents showed that they would like to see a trim trail in this area as this was their top priority, now with the help of Tesco we can help make this become a reality.”

Stratford Samaritans received £10,000 from the scheme, and the Where Next Association £8,000.
