Town Council backs sensory trail application

News report in Banbury GuardianChipping Norton Town Council has backed proposals to build a sensory trail at Fairytale Farm. Nick and Nicola Laister, who are building the activity farm at Southcombe Farm near Chipping Norton, have applied for planning permission to construct the trail which is designed to engage all the senses. Features of the sensory trail will include light fountains, musical tanks, an oversized xylophone, a set of five Tubano children's drums, a rain wheel, a mirror panel and sensory totem posts. At its centre will be a quiet sensory garden with a variety of flowers.

The news was covered in the Banbury Guardian, who printed an artists impression of the park produced by Chipping Norton-based designers mark-making. Click here to view the news item.

Work on the project continues, with preview openings in summer 2012.
