Five families are being sought in Penryn and Falmouth to try out a new nature trail.

Cornwall Neighbourhoods for Change (CN4C) got funding through the Big Lottery for the project.

The trail will run from the Beacon estate through nature spots and looping around the Penryn river.

It will have its own tailored made trail map and activity pack to do along the way and focuses on getting people out and accessing nature.

The trail will be hosted on a new website which goes live in February, with a big launch event with storytelling, treasure hunts, food and prizes.

People are invited to enter a photo competition with pictures inspired by the nature around the towns, which will go on the new website.

The winner will receive free entry into the nearest National Trust property for a family or two adults.

But CN4C want five to become part of a focus group to independently walk the trail and try out the new activity pack, which is suitable for children up to 12 years of age.

It would like feedback and opinions about the route, the games and activities, and the overall enjoyment of it.

All focus group members will get a £5 voucher.

Anyone who wants to get involved should contact project worker Karen Llewellyn on 01209 310610.
