Northam Town Council have received funding through the HMCEF to clear the vegetation and carry out grass cutting across Northam.

The money awarded helped purchase a lawn mower for the Parish and equipment to help clear the weeds, cut the grass, hedge cutting, clean signs, gully and drainage clearance. The money has also helped train further staff. The work that has been undertaken has helped with general ongoing issues across the Parish.

As a result of the works Northam now have the ability to undertake extra grass cutting. The general maintaince around the Parish has also been improved.
