A swimming pool,  a children’s outdoor play area and a scout hall are among the latest projects to secure money from a fund created to help people improve their local area.

They were on a list of six schemes to be awarded money by David Hodge from the Community Improvements Fund, which the Surrey leader launched three years ago to give local groups the chance to make lasting improvements in their neighbourhood.

Mr Hodge said: “While our budgets are under pressure, we have a responsibility for ensuring Surrey’s future prosperity and these projects are all great examples of the council and residents joining together to provide lasting benefits for local people.

“Schemes that have already been helped are now enhancing communities throughout the county and the latest groups to secure money will undoubtedly make an equally positive contribution to their neighbourhoods.”

The full list of projects and the amounts they were awarded can be found here.

Projects that have previously benefited from the fund include a youth cafe and an outdoor gym.
