GPs' 'trim trail' tribute

Dr Louise Skioldebrand from Stowhealth Medical Centre, demonstrates the 'trim trail' for the community of Stowmarket, Suffolk.

The exercise area was built as a tribute to Dr Ian Jenkins, a partner at the centre with a fondness for keeping fit, who died in January 2006 after suffering from a rare heart condition. The trim trail idea was the practice's and it was funded predominantly by Mid Suffolk District Council. Dr Skioldebrand added: 'Dr Steve Lazar, who worked at Stowhealth, died recently from a different heart-related condition, so healthy hearts are very much on top of Stowhealth's agenda.'
