Alan Gloak visited Strode College this week to give them £500.00 from the Healthy Living Fund towards their Trim Trail.
Councillor Alan Gloak said: “The Trim Trail will be a great way for students to get fit and local residents will benefit too. I am glad to see that Crispin School is also involved as obesity is a hidden problem and we must act to combat it by educating young people about the importance of staying fit and healthy; this trail will help”
Councillor Terry Napper said: “We are lucky to have such an excellent college providing fantastic facilities for our local young people and the wider community. This project is a great example of how people are benefitting from Street and Glastonbury joining together.”
James Staniforth, Principal of Strode College said: “We are delighted to receive this grant ..... The Trim Trail will be a valuable addition to our sports facilities which are used by Strode students for their studies and their sports activities as well as by pupils from Crispin School. The local community also make good use of our facilities for a range of clubs, classes and individual activities; I look forward to seeing people enjoying this new equipment in the Spring.”
