Patching in Beaford
Beaford Parish Council received a grant from the HMCEF for a project to patch an estate road, Shepherds Meadow, within their community.
A £5,000 donation was approved by Devon County Council and the parish council provided match funding in the form of volunteer time to complete the works.
Beaford Parish Council prepared the site and managed all communications with residents to bring about the transformation of an area previously considered to be in a poor state.
