A grant of £1618.00 was awarded from the Highway Maintenance Community Enhancement Fund (HMCEF) to enable the council to purchase personal protective equipment (PPE), a lawn mower, tools and materials to carry out work undertaken by both the town maintenance operative and volunteers.
An example of the works undertaken is the removal of overgrown vegetation along St Brannocks Road.
