Funding for wood work

A COMMUNITY project has been awarded £350 by Derbyshire County Council from a fund set up for green projects. The cash will be used for improvements to steps and pathways at Hermit’s Wood, in Stanton-by-Dale.

The project is one of five awarded grants. To apply for funding go to
