STAFF and pupils at a Flintshire school celebrated the installation of new exercise and play equipment.

Drury Primary School now has a trim trail, which encourages teamwork and develops gross motor skills.

This has been paid for by the hard work of the home-school association and will provide a lasting opportunity for children to develop their climbing and balancing skills as well as receive a feeling of achievement as they complete the course.

Children from reception to Year 6 are able to use the equipment, under supervision, and many of the pupils have already enjoyed the new challenge.

With the rubberised matting on the ground, the school hopes the trim trail can be used most of the year and is now fundraising for a path so it can be more easily accessed when the grass is wet.

Head teacher Mark Biltcliffe said: "We had talked about getting a trim trail quite a bit during the last school year and Morgan Davies, Keira Edwards and Oliver Last were on the school council when designs were chosen.

"I thought it was therefore only fitting to invite them back to be the first to use it. It has been a fantastic addition to the outdoor opportunities for the children and a very big word of thanks is due to all pupils, parents and staff who worked so hard to raise the money."
