Compost made from food scraps and garden cuttings has been delivered to green-fingered groups in Preston and South Ribble.

Holme Slack Gardening Club and St Anthony’s Primary School Gardening Club in Preston will use the delivery to top up vegetable and flower beds in the school grounds.

Leyland St Mary’s Technology College and Brindle Road Allotment Association, in South Ribble, will use their compost for a peace garden and create more raised beds.

The groups have received a total of 15 tonnes of compost from a partnership between Lancashire County Council and Global Renewables Lancashire Limited to process the county’s waste and send less to landfill.
