The Rotary Club of St Ives, along with the committee Friends of Thorndown, has helped to fund a new Trim Trail at Thorndown primary School.

The Rotary Club youth service member Jon Swain and fellow Rotarian Philip Sadler went along to see the jointly funded project with the pupils, who then showed them which part of the Trim Trail was their favourite.

A Trim Trail is an outdoor parcourse path consisting of exercise equipment and obstacles which helps promote good health and fun for children.

Member of the Rotary Club Fiona Stocker said: "We are always happy to be able to support our local schools with projects such as these.

"Our youth committee is one of our busiest committees, always organising competitions and events with the young people in the community."

The Rotary Club spend a lot of time getting involved with youth projects, hosting a well supported primary school quiz in February and, later in the year, are planning for an art exhibition.
