Two organisations have received a welcome boost after councillors awarded them some money.

Aldenham Parish Council in Radlett has been given £200 by Cllr David Lambert. It will go towards funding recycling bins for Phillimore Recreation Ground in Gills Hill, Radlett.

Cllr Lambert has also given £250, alongside councillor Caroline Clapper, to the Aldenham War Memorial Hall. The 100-year-old hall needs a £1,200 elecrical upgrade.

Cllr Lambert said: “Both these projects are very deserving. The hall and the recreation ground are focal points for the local community and so it’s vital that they are well-maintained.

"Such a historic building requires continual care and attention, and this latest refurbishment is just one in a series undertaken by the committee to help safeguard it for future generations.”

"And people are more aware than ever of the necessity of recycling their packaging, especially minimising their plastic use. The new bins will give them more opportunity to do this.

Hertsmere's 39 borough councillors receive £500 from the council every year to spend on projects as part of the ward improvement initiative scheme.
