Trail of success for annual ride

THE region got it's first rain for quite some time at the weekend but it failed to dampen the enthusiasm of those taking part in the annual Greenlands Trail Ride.

About 330 people attended the two-day event, down marginally on last year but those who did attend the event, a fundraiser for Greenlands State School, rated it a major success.

"It was a fantastic weekend,” Greenlands State School principal Kyle Low said.

"Unfortunately the weather played into a lack of numbers coming through but in saying that the riders and families that came out have said it's one of the best trail rides they've been to.

"Receiving feedback like that is extremely positive for our community and shows how much they appreciated it.” Mr Low said the amount raised wouldn't be finalised for a couple weeks.

"Regardless of the figure it will be in the positive which is great and it helps quite a lot across our school and allows us to keep offering the best education we can,” he said.

Mr Low thanked the more than 150 volunteers who assisted during the .

"It makes doing it enjoyable when everyone is having fun and working towards a common goal,” he said.
