A MUM from Westcliff has shared her delight over a new interactive trail installed in the area.

Loretto, part of Wheatley Group, created the trail as a result of a recent ‘You Choose Challenge’, which encourages tenants to submit ideas on how to improve their community.

Once ideas have been shortlisted, tenants are asked to vote for their favourite projects.

The majority of the vote in Westcliff went to a project to improve the area for children.

The newly-installed £3,400 trail, which was built by Scotplay, is open to everyone in the community and features games such as hopscotch and snakes and ladders.

Nicola Rennie lives with her two daughters Holly, seven, and Lucy, six, and they are delighted with the new trail.

She said: “My daughters love it. We use it daily and it’s become part of our routine on the way to and from school. It’s a focal point of the day and a great addition to the neighbourhood.”

Further work is expected to take place in Westcliff over the coming weeks as Loretto looks to install picnic benches.

Eric Gibson, chair of Loretto, said: “Our You Choose Challenge is a great way to encourage customers to have their voice heard and make their community a great place to live.

“We hope this new activity trail will promote a sense of togetherness among families living in the community now and in the future.”
