A Grantham play area will be refurbished thanks to a £100,000 grant provided by the FCC Communities Foundation.

The Beeden Park play area near Beechcroft Road in Grantham will benefit from upgrades totalling £127,000 including additional funding of £5,000 from the Rotary Club of Grantham. 

The overall figure also includes £22,000 of investment by South Kesteven District Council to improve the facilities at the park.

A spokesperson for the Council said: “Green spaces and play areas are really important for our community and make a huge difference to the wellbeing of those living in the area.

“We are delighted that the FCC Communities Foundation has awarded us the money to improve the facilities at Beeden Park.”

Following the successful grant, details of the improvement work will be decided by the Council in partnership with the FCC Communities Foundation.

The Landfill Communities Fund and Scottish Landfill Communities Fund - any waste that is discarded which cannot be reused, reprocessed or recycled may ultimately be disposed of in a landfill site. To encourage the re-use, recycle and recovery of more value from waste and use more environmentally friendly methods of waste disposal, Landfill Tax is charged on each tonne of waste sent to landfill. Landfill Operators (LOs) are able to redirect a small proportion of landfill tax liability to support a wide range of community and environmental projects in the vicinity of landfill sites through the Landfill Communities Fund (LCF) and Scottish Landfill Communities Fund (SLCF). The LCF is regulated by ENTRUST on behalf of HM Revenue & Customs, and the projects are delivered by enrolled Environmental bodies (EBs). The SLCF is regulated by SEPA on behalf of Revenue Scotland and projects are delivered by Approved Bodies (ABs).
