Benches ordered and water kit installed on Town Hall.

In December `08 the group were awarded a `grassroots grant` for £900, we had earmarked this money to buy a new bench for the garden in Lowtown, members of the group had replanted this last year and entered it in the Community and City Pride Awards and we were runners up. However, the area has always been spoiled by the old tatty benches that are there. This is what they look like at the moment:

And we have just ordered a new bench which will be arriving very soon, in fact we are getting 2 as the Pudsey Civic Society are also buying one. The benches are made from recycled plastic which should be low maintenance, environmentally friendly and an economical alternative to timber. We have also approached the Pudsey town centre manager who is checking if council funds are available to replace the dustbin with a permanent litter bin.

The rest of the grant money has been spent on installing an automatic water kit on the town hall, this is now almost complete and will save us lots of money on watering costs.
