Children are jumping for joy at the arrival of a new trampoline in Therfield Play Park.

Therfield School pupils voted for a trampoline to be added to the park, with one of the main reasons given being that it would be accessible for all children to use. 

William Hamilton, nine, said: “I vote for the trampoline because less people have a trampoline at home and it costs a lot to go to a trampoline park.”  

Marlon, five, said: “Everyone can use the trampoline, whether you’re in a wheelchair or old or young – it’s for everyone.” 

Head teacher, Tara McGovern, said: “What a treat for the whole school to watch the grand unveiling of the trampoline. We really appreciate the parish council involving our children in the decision making process.”
