Fire-hit farm scheme gets a Â£5,000 makeover
Greenslate Community Farm in Orrell was a regional winner in the Jewson Building Better Communities competition, scooping Â£5,000 worth of materials and labour.
The prize will go towards rebuilding a shed wrecked by fire at the community resource which provides volunteering, training, education and therapeutic activities for adults with learning and physical disabilities.
Volunteer Steven Melling said: “It’s absolutely fantastic to have won. We lost a lot of equipment in the barn fire, so the Â£5,000 will help us make the repairs and replace what was lost.”
