Residents invited to view trail plan

A new nature trail could be create in Scarborough as a residents group reveals its plans.

Sandybed Residents’ Association wants the residents of Sandybed to have their say on its plans to create a community nature trail on an underused piece of land on the estate.

The green area behind Eskitt Hill has been identified by the association’s committee as an area with “great potential” that could be redeveloped as a natural setting for all sections of the community to enjoy.

This Saturday, September 22 between 11am and 2pm the association will be holding a community fun day on the green area of land behind Sandybed Stores.

The aim of the fun day is to display the draft plans and to ask for residents’ ideas of how they would like the nature trail to look.

There will be a barbecue, face-painting, bouncy castle and other children’s activities, tombola, cake stall and more.

Association chairman, Ray Walker, said: “We would encourage all residents of Sandybed to come along to the fun day and give us their ideas for the nature trail.

“We want to make the area behind Eskitt Hill a pleasant, peaceful place for all areas to enjoy.

“We are also delighted that our Scarborough mayor, Cllr Helen Mallory, will be joining us on the day to find out about all the good work that is happening on the estate.”

Entry to the fun day is free and residents are encouraged to drop in whenever they can. For more information, contact Ray Walker on 07903 500399.

The residents’ association is supported by Scarborough Borough Council, Yorkshire Coast Homes and Chevin Housing Association.
