Coun Mihaly secured the funding via the council’s Members’ Community Leadership Scheme. He said: ““Community groups do rely on small grants to survive and this one will help to sustain the allotment for years to come and indirectly its members health and wellbeing. The latter item is a key priority for DCC therefore I am very pleased to support this group.”
