The children of Abbot’s Hall Primary School will be having fun and keeping fit on their new trim trail opened by Stowmarket Town Mayor Cllr Dave Muller, his Consort Lois Muller and Headteacher Mrs Rachel Bailey.  The trim trail was purchased with funds raised by the Friends of Abbot’s Hall Primary throughout the year.

During his visit Stowmarket Town Mayor Cllr Dave Muller spent time with the children answering questions about his role as Mayor of the town, and the history of the Council Offices.  He added “It was an absolute delight for myself and Lois to open the school’s new trim trail and meet with students.  We hope they have many years of fun on the new equipment.”

The Friends of Abbot’s Hall Primary School is a small group of parents dedicated to raising funds to give all children at the school additional opportunities and facilities.  The Friends have organised various events over the past year including discos, movie nights, cake sales and a very successful summer fair raising almost £2000.  Mrs Bailey praised the group “We are very lucky to have such a pro-active and engaged Friends’ Association here at Abbot’s Hall Primary and I am thrilled that the money that they have raised has been used on this project. The ‘Trim ‘Trail’ is a fantastic resource that ALL children will be able to enjoy, helping them to stay active, develop their motor skills and work cooperatively with each other.”
