Wimborne Model Town is very chipper

A popular Dorset tourist attraction has received half a tonne of playground chip from Eco Sustainable Solutions for use in a play area for younger visitors.


Manager of Wimborne Model Town, Greg Hoar, contacted Parley-based Eco Sustainable Solutions who arranged to donate a blend of soft and hardwood log chippings for use in the attraction’s Wendy Street, a specially enclosed play area for younger visitors.

Wimborne Model Town annually attracts thousands of visitors with its 1/10th scale models showing the town as it was in the 1950s.

Opened in 1951, it features over 100 shop window displays as well as the town’s famous minster church.

Mr Hoar said Eco’s donation was “greatly appreciated.”

He added, “As a registered charity we rely on the generosity and goodwill of many individuals, companies and organisations. Eco’s actions are a marvellous example of the support we receive from all sections of the community.”

Peter Hardy, Eco’s Commercial Director, said: “We receive many requests for help from good causes and non profit-making organisations. If we can assist we will, as was the case here.”
