Elaine Tickell, Vice Chairman of Horndean Parish Council, said:
“Horndean Parish Council was thrilled when Highwood offered funding support at the outset of this major new project of walking for health, wellbeing and interest. Horndean is a great place to live with a lot of green space, access to beautiful countryside and a rich history going back centuries. The trail will enhance how residents live here and the funding enables us to move the project forward in Blendworth where Highwood is building the new care home and retirement village.
“Part of our vision is to facilitate the integration of the new residents into the existing community through their accessing the trails and local facilities and immersing themselves in the area’s history. Highwood’s funding has double value as it enables us to obtain match funding for the project.”
