The Wanborough Trail and Story Launch Day

The official opening and blessing of the trail took place on Saturday 14th March.

The Rev Bill O'Connell led a short service of dedication, Anita Basevi explained the background to the trail and thanked all those who had contributed in so many ways.

Bob Biggs, Chair of the Parish Council also thanked all involved and expressed the hope that the trail would provide recreation and information for parishioners and others in the future, as the Council takes over primary responsibility for maintenance of the trail.

Sarah Troughton (HM Lord - Lieutenant of Wiltshire), made the official opening and unveiled the dedication plaque.

The event was attended by many parishioners, in particular, children from Wanborough Primary School who designed the rubbing plates on the posts and the decoration around the map boards.
