One of Preston’s award-winning parks will be getting a funding boost.

Haslam Park will see £49,082 pumped into it to recover and conserve threatened plants.

The Lancashire Wildlife Trust secured the funding for the Ashton-on-Ribble park via the Veolia Environmental Trust.

Benjamin Hargreaves, of the Wildlife Trust, said: “The grant from The Veolia Environmental Trust means we can push the project forward and really enhance the biodiversity of the park.”

The money will see landscaping done to create a wetland area and three information boards will be added to the park explaining what is happening.

Haslam Park was one of five Preston park’s recently given a Green Flag award for the quality of the upkeep of the parks.
