A community allotment in Ribbleton has been given a makeover.Advertisement
Lancashire County Council have ploughed £8,000 into improving the entrance to the Moor Nook Community Allotments.
An access road off Langden Drive has been turned from a muddy track into a surfaced road with fresh tarmac and new signs have been installed to direct visitors.
County Councillor John Fillis, cabinet member for highways and transport, said: “Small environmental improvements like this make a real difference by giving people a better sense of ownership of their community facilities
“Our Environment and Community Projects team works with the Estate Management Board for Moor Nook and residents had identified that ! the state of the access road was a problem for everyone who uses the allotment and particularly for people with limited mobility.”
County Councillor Kevin Ellard who represents the area, added: “People in Moor Nook really value the allotments and I’m very glad we’ve been able to make it easier for everyone to visit them.
“The new signs feature colourful pictures of vegetables which were designed by the local youth club and I’m glad to see what has been achieved as result of good partnership work by a number of local organisations.”
