An allotment off Liverpool Road has received additional funding towards its memorial garden.


Penwortham Holme West Allotment Association has lodged a bid totalling £1,350 from local county councillors.

Preston Central South councillor Carl Crompton has put £150 of his local member allowance towards the scheme.

The association has already secured £500 from two Penwortham county councillors.

A statement in their application says: “In recent years we have been engaged in an extensive programme of regeneration within our 10.50 acre allotment site.

“We wish now to create a Memorial Garden and events area for a suitable designated piece of land.

“At present our events such a allotment shows, apple pressing days, plant swap days, have to take place on the car park. This is to the detriment of car users and has potential to cause safety issues.

“The events area will be situated within the Memorial Garden which will be a pleasant area in which past plot holders can be remembered and honoured.”
