Pupils go ape over new trim trail
SCHOOLCHILDREN in Nailsea will now be able to keep fit while having fun – thanks to a new �15,000 adventure playground installed in their grounds.
Pupils at Golden Valley Primary School could not wait for their special visitor, North Somerset MP Liam Fox, to officially open a wooden trim trail so they could swing and clamber over logs to their hearts content.
The funds for the ten different obstacles were raised by the Golden Valley School Association which has organised a swimathon and discos among other events in the past year.
Treasurer Alison Nicholls, who also works as a dinner lady at the school, said: “The children absolutely love the equipment and couldn’t get on it quick enough.
“Each year group will be allocated a time during the day to use it from now on.”
