A CHILDREN'S adventure trail is to be opened in Great Gidding by MP Shailesh Vara on Saturday, September 2.
The wooden adventure trail is made up of 14 different pieces of equipment ranging from balance beams to a 'Burma bridge'.
The cash for the project was raised by a number of events organised by people in the village and its school, including an auction of promises and a children's talent show.
The village amenities committee, working with the community and local businesses, raised £4,500 for the equipment, which villagers have installed on the parish recreation field.

Committee vice chairman Steve Smith said: "This has been a great project to work on from the start knowing that we can provide our children with a safe and fun place to play. Too many kids have nowhere to go these days. There has been a lot of hard work to get this far, but its been worth every minute."
Mr Smith added his thanks to the Earl Fitzwilliam Charitable Trust, Perkins Engines, News International Supply and Sainsbury's who all supported the project.
