Grant for play

The summer weather may be a bit gloomy but the sun was shining on Youlgrave after the village received a £2000 grant from Fields in Trust to improve a playing field.

The money will be used by Youlgrave Parish Council to replace the rubber play surface on the QEII Alport Lane Playing Fields.

A spokesman for Youlgrave Parish Council said: “We’re delighted to be awarded this money by Fields in Trust as part of their marking of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the Olympic and Paralympic Games.”
