A composting site in Tatsfield, a memorial garden in Woking and a scout hall expansion in Reigate are among the projects to win cash from a fund to help communities improve their local areas.
They were among 15 schemes awarded up to £50,000 each by Surrey County Council leader David Hodge from the Community Improvements Fund he created with the aim of helping local people’s efforts to independently enhance their neighbourhood. A full list of the projects and the amount they won can be found by following this link.
Mr Hodge said: “These projects are fantastic examples of the county council and residents joining together to make Surrey an even better place to live. All these groups are strengthening the ability of residents to independently enhance where they live and are providing lasting improvements to communities.”
