A number of community organisations in Lichfield and Burntwood are celebrating after being awarded grants by Lichfield District Council.
Fifteen groups had bids for up to £5,000 accepted by the local authority.
Cllr Doug Pullen, Cabinet Member for Community, said he was pleased to see applications covering a range of initiatives: “It’s great to see so many projects which show communities across the district are busy preparing a whole range of activities.
“From day trips for the blind, to table tennis coaching, through to larger festivals such as Lichfield Bower and Lichfield Food Festival, there is plenty of work going on behind the scenes, and I am delighted we can offer these groups and organisations a small funding boost.”
Among the recipients is Spark in Burntwood, which runs two community centres for children and families in the area. The £1,000 will be used to create a sensory garden at its Boney Hay site.
Esther Allen, from Spark, said: “We’re delighted to have received this grant and we’ve already made a start transforming our outdoor area.
“The completed garden will have wind chimes, mirrors, a barefoot walk and a shaded area.”
