Councillors hope to lure big name to open trail
10:00am Friday 30th August 2013 in Harwich and Manningtree News
COUNCILLORS are hoping to lure a big name to open its new get-fit trail.
The “trim trail” has been built on Mistley’s Furze Hill.
It features ten exercise obstacles such as balance beams, parallel bars and a rope bridge.
The project provides Mistley with an Olympic legacy.
In keeping with this Councillor Charlotte Howell has written to Sebastian Coe who chairs the British Olympic Association to invite him to open the trail.
She said: “His work revolves around Olympic legacies and this is the three parishes’ Olympic legacy."
