The refurbished assault course at Stanwick Lakes is proving a big hit with families.

There is now a giant new entrance and a Mission Impossible-style rope challenge for children and adults alike to enjoy.

The upgrade was made possible thanks to a grant of almost £33,000 from SITA Trust to the Rockingham Forest Trust, which manages Stanwick Lakes.

Chairman of East Northants Council Gill Mercer was joined at the nature attraction by families to celebrate the new equipment.

Cllr Mercer said: “It’s fantastic to have this new facility at Stanwick Lakes, great for the children and indeed adults because it can be used for team-building days.”

The equipment has also been enjoyed by fitness fanatics and people taking part in the Stanwick Lakes Team Challenge.

Jools Granville from SITA said: “We are delighted to have been able to support this project through the Landfill Communities Fund.”

SITA Trust provides grants through the Landfill Communities Fund.

This source of funding has been available since 1997 and has provided projects across the country with more than £1.3bn.
