Dig In North West is currently working on a walled garden within Ashton Park.

They applied for £200 from Preston West county councillor David Borrow to help towrds the £2,000 costs of the carptentry workshop they want to build.

A statement from the community interest company said: “We would like to install a robust shed within our walled garden to be used as a carpentry workshop. This money will also cover some carpentry tools in order to establish a basic workplace for our veterans to carry out therapeutic carpentry activities.”

Work is still under way to complete the walled garden extension.

Dig In have also applied to four other county councillors for £200 grants, to take the total from the county council to £1,000.
