Borehamwood Girl Guides and Air Cadets handed grants from Hertsmere Borough Council
Girl Guiders and Air Cadet leaders are celebrating after getting cash grants.
The Borehamwood Girl Guide Association were given £400 and the Air Cadets in Rossington Avenue will receive £500.
The guides, aged between ten and 15, will be using the money to pay for repairs at their headquarters in Maxwell Road.
The cadets are saving up to buy a new computer to help teenage members prepare for their Duke of Edinburgh award exams.
Cadet leader Raymond Edge said: “We are very happy – they do some of these exams online so this will help them study for them all.
“They do not yet know we have received this grant yet so I am really excited to tell them.”
Both groups were awarded the money through Hertsmere Borough Council’s Ward Improvement Scheme, in which councillors are given £1,000 to spend on projects.
