A hole lot of help for play area!

A MULTIGAMES project in Arley has been boosted with a grant of pounds 25,000 - from a hole in the ground!

At its October board meeting, environmental body Wren announced the distribution of the grant to Arley Multigames area for refurbishment of the existing play area and providing secure fencing and seating.

The funding comes from the Landfill Tax credits generated by Waste Recycling Group.

The grants, made under the Landfill Tax Credit Scheme, aim to improve community life by enhancing existing facilities and providing new facilities, such as play areas and village halls.

David Wheeler, managing director of Wren, said: "Our philosophy is to return as much of the tax collected as possible to those who paid it in the first place and enhance communities near landfill sites.

"Despite recent changes to the scheme, there is still funding available for projects that benefit communities."
