Waddington Parish Council has been granted £400 to fund a water supply to the village allotments.

It is among parish councils across Lancashire to receive small grants in the latest round of funding from Lancashire County Council.

Its parish champion, County Councillor Mike Otter, has been visiting parishes to fund projects that benefit local communities.

He said: “Parish councils do a lot of hard work at grassroots level to improve local people’s quality of life. We’ve funded everything from a water system on the allotments at Waddington, to war memorial improvements in Bilsborrow.

“These may only seem like smaller projects, but they can make a big difference to people’s lives.

“Any parish council’s looking for support for their services should contact me and I’ll be happy to help.”
