YOUNGSTERS at a Hyde primary school have marked the 10th anniversary of their Millennium Pathway.
The footpath at Dowson Primary School was opened in 2000, to mark the start of the new millennium. And since then youngsters at the school have regularly enjoyed the walk.
On Friday youngsters from the school celebrated the 10th anniversary of the opening of the pathway as part of their Eco Week celebrations. And they opened the Cycle for Life Trail.
The event was attended by school pupils, teachers and supporters, including Mayor Cllr Jean Brazil, Cllr, John Sullivan, Cllr Jim Fitzpatrick and Stalybridge and Hyde MP Jonathan Reynolds.
Following the event, Mr Reynolds said: "The weather may have been inclement, but there was no dampening the spirits of everyone who turned out to celebrate the anniversary of the Millennium Pathway.
"Youngsters from the school took us on a tour of the pathway. And it's clear to see that they enjoy it as much now as ever. "Outdoor space is really important - and Dowson Primary school are determined to ensure they make the very best use of the space that's available to them."
