Top triathlete opens Norwich school’s new trim trail

Norfolk professional triathlete Kim Morrison officially opened the brand-new trim trail at Kinsale Junior School (KJS), Hellesdon, Norwich.

The impressive wooden obstacle course, installed by Norfolk –based NGF Play,  is the result of more than four years of hard work by children,  staff and Friends of the school to raise the large funds required.

Lovell boosted their efforts by funding the trim trail’s new ladder walk. The local fundraising push led by the school’s governing body also attracted sponsorship from sandwich chain Subway.

“The trim trail is fantastic and has gone down a storm with the children,” says Kinsale Junior headteacher Carolyn Baxter.

“The brand-new fitness trail runs alongside the playground and we’ve also installed an all-weather surface to encourage use throughout the year. We’re very grateful for the support from Lovell and Subway, while the children and Friends of KJS have worked very hard to raise the money we needed.”

The school – attended by around 240 children aged 7 to 11 – organised a series of fundraising activities, including Easter egg raffles and summer and Christmas fairs.

Lovell is currently working nearby in Hellesdon, building the brand-new Firs Park housing development. Regional managing director Simon Medler says: “When we heard the school needed support with the trim trail, we were really pleased to be able to help out. It looks great and we’re sure the children will enjoy using it.” The company supports community organisations wherever possible as part of its Lovell Legacy commitment to creating lasting benefits in the areas where it works.
