Trim Trail

Over the years the Parish Council have been approached with many schemes for the use of Parish Council land, skate parks, tennis courts, football pitch to name a few.

Some have been implemented, such as the playpark at The Grove, however in accordance with the wishes of the majority expressed in the survey for the Parish Plan 2005, The Green and Wilderness have remained untouched with no permanent structures other than the Pavilion and the bridges over the ditches.

There is, however, before the Parish Council a proposal for a “Trim Trail”, which considering the national push for a healthier and fitter lifestyle the Parish Council is giving consideration.

A Trim Trail consists of a series of exercise stations, (perhaps 6 or more), positioned some distance apart. Each station will consist of a piece of exercise apparatus and an instruction board. The idea being you run/walk between each station and then undertake the exercise. The estimated cost is around £20,000.

It has also been proposed that this trail is constructed around perimeter of The Wilderness. This is the field where the bonfire is held for Guy Fawkes night.

Such a scheme would be a significant departure from the Parish Plan 2005, therefore the Parish Council would very much welcome your views before any decision is made.

What was Hilton like eighty years ago at the beginning of the second world war? A National Register compiled on 29th September 1939 provides a remarkable insight into every household in Hilton. Evacuees had already arrived, but there was not enough room in the village school. The National Farm Survey, two years later, gives a detailed account of farming in the parish. There is so much which can be found out about Hilton at a critical point in its development.

I have brought all this together in a book so that everyone can share what I have discovered. If you would like a copy (£7 to help cover printing costs), please contact me at 3, Mill Hill End, or phone 07484 650209
