Everybody Active Town Winners

A big thank you to everybody who voted for us! We were successful!

A big thank you to everyone who voted for our projects below. We have won a share of the £30,000 and these projects will be happening here at The Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre over the next 12 months.

Onny Meadows Easy Access Trail  

A new easy access trail for all will connect the Onny Meadows to the River Onny at Kingfisher Corner. This 200 metre long path replaces a narrow, bumpy and muddy grass path. A new picnic table and renovated bench will enable people to sit and enjoy the riverside tranquility. The trail will enable people to take regular, gentle walks in a safe and very attractive environment.

Wild Play for all  

A new wild play area in woodland in the Onny Meadows will encourage children to exercise, while having fun. Play spaces and structures to suit children of all ages will be created, introducing them to wild and natural play and helping to develop their climbing, balancing and motor skills. It will be an attractive destination for family groups to walk or cycle to.
