Green groups in the Dales have been given grant boosts for eco projects.

Derbyshire County Council has awarded £220 to Bakewell Gardening Association to provide plots for children and disabled people.

The association is set to create two raised beds and develop disabled access.

Winster Pre-School has also been given a £150 grant to spend on waterproof clothing so that children can use an outdoor classroom area and garden which the school is going to develop on land at West Bank.

The money is from the latest round of Derbyshire Greenwatch Action Grants scheme to deserving groups across the county. To apply for a grant contact Call Derbyshire on 08456 058 058.
