Green-fingered gardeners in Preston have received a boost after Lancashire County Council invested £8,000 to spruce up the entrance to Moor Nook Community Allotments.
The previously muddy access road off Langden Drive has now been surfaced with fresh tarmac as well as two new signs erected to welcome people to Moor Nook and direct them to local facilities.
County Councillor Kevin Ellard who represents the area, added: “People in Moor Nook really value the allotments.
“I’m very glad we’ve been able to make it easier for everyone to visit them.
Councillor Ellard added:“The new signs feature colourful pictures of vegetables which were designed by the local youth club.
“I’m glad to see what has been achieved as result of good partnership work by a number of local organisations.”
Lancashire County Council worked closely with officers from Preston City Council’s Community Engagement team and Community Gateway Association to deliver the scheme.
The improvements to the allotment area was funded from a Lanashire County Council budget for small environmental projects.
