TWO years of fundraising finally paid off for the children and parents of Walpole Highway School on Friday when a new adventure play trail was officially opened.

Jackie Scott, chairman of the Friends of the School, cut a ribbon to open the trail, which has cost around £2,000.

It has taken around two years of numerous fundraising events including sponsored walks, regular cake stalls, and discos to raise the necessary money.

All 40 of the school’s pupils were excited to have a first try on the new play equipment following Friday’s official opening.
