Grant boost for volunteer gardeners
by Tom Martin

VOLUNTEER gardeners who are making a “real difference” in sprucing up Aintree Village have been given a funding boost.

Old Roan Community Gardening Club, which has been running for ten years, looks after the green areas surrounding Old Roan and also Aintree Village Youth and Community Centre.

They were recently awarded a grant by Aintree Village Parish Council to help buy new equipment to help them with their mission.

A cheque presentation was held when Parish Council Chairman, Cllr Stephen Gent, met with Margaret Wagner, from the gardening club along with Jennifer Cottrill who is the ‘Community Champion' from the local Asda store.

Cllr Gent said: “Aintree Village Parish Council would like to thank the Old Roan Community Gardening Club, which is run by a team of dedicated volunteers, for all their hard work and commitment in ensuring that Old Roan and Aintree Village looks neat, tidy and attractive to resident and visitor alike. My sincere thanks to all members of the club on behalf of all residents of Aintree Village.'
