YOUNGSTERS from the village of Littleham will soon have a new adventure trail to explore - thanks to a partnership between Devon County Council, the local community and businesses.Littleham playground is set to be transformed with a circular trail of activities such as timber-framed tyre swings, climbing frames and rope walks.County councillor Hugo Barton has contributed £2,000 towards the project from his county committee budget and the remainder of the cost of the equipment will be provided through matched-funding from Barclays Bank, the proceeds of a family fun day being held June 14 and support from other local businesses.It is hoped the final target of £6,000 will be reached by the summer and the equipment installed in September.Cllr Barton said: "This superb adventure trail will provide a real feature for the village and will benefit some 60 children who live in the parish, as well as those from further afield. I'm pleased to support the project and would like to thank the partners who have also pledged their support." Paul Jarrett of Barclays Commercial said: "This is a great boost for our project and our thanks go to Cllr Barton. We hope soon to have something that will help to increase the community spirit that we feel here in Littleham.
