COMMUNITY PROJECTS GET ‘GREEN’ LIGHT!

Four community organisations are set to benefit following a competition designed to

encourage sustainable projects that will help to improve the local environment.

The competition, introduced during the launch of Immingham ‘In Bloom’, by local community

group One Voice, gave residents, local schools, and community groups the opportunity to win

up to 3,000 to help deliver projects addressing green issues such as re-cycling and

conservation.

The prize funding, generously donated by Associated British Ports, will enable Immingham

Schools, Coomb Briggs Primary and Eastfield Primary, to develop their respective Kitchen

Garden and Grow Your Own projects, allowing children and parents to produce fruit and

vegetables whilst encouraging social interaction.

Stallingborough CE Primary Schools ‘Community Lifestyle’ project will see the planting of fruit

trees and rearing of chickens, with produce being used in the school’s cookery club.

Immingham’s Trinity Methodist Church will be able to progress with their ‘Outside Community

Area’ which will include enhancing the existing garden and the creation of a soft play area.

One Voice’s Gordon Smith said, “We are pleased to be able to support these excellent

projects, all of which will help to improve local spaces, and encourage the community to

become involved with ‘green’ initiatives”.
