Lane Estate green area to get £1,000 spruce up
7:00pm Sunday 29th September 2013 in News
NEW play equipment, raised flower beds and a fenced off dog walking are to be installed at a neglected green area in Taunton.
The improvements behind Lane Estate follows a £1,000 grant from the Summerfield and Tauntfield Trust through Somerset Community Foundation.
The cash has been presented to Lane Estate Tenants and Residents Association (LETRA).
Secretary Karen Masters said: “We’d like the park to suit the needs of a range of local groups who use it.
“Improved facilities will mean more people will be encouraged to use the outdoor space and, thanks to the grant, we’re able to make a start on introducing the improvements.”
Mark Blackwell, finance director at Summerfield Developments, said: “As a family company, we’re really keen to support projects that promote community spirit.
“LETRA’s plans were a great match and we wish them the best of luck with the development.”
