People from Radlett should find it even easier to be greener after a bid to introduce recycling bins at a recreation ground in the village was given a financial boost.
Cllr David Lambert, who represents the area at parish and district level, has given Aldenham Parish Council £200 from Hertsmere Borough Council’s Ward Improvement Initiative Scheme (WIIS) to help pay for new bins.
The aim is to encourage visitors to the park to dispose of their waste in a greener way.
Cllr Lambert, alongside Cllr Caroline Clapper, has also given £250 of WIIS funding to the Aldenham War Memorial Hall. The 100-year-old hall needs a £1200 electrical 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.
“On the back of recent press coverage, 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.
“As a nominated representative for the parish council on the memorial hall management committee, I know how tirelessly the volunteers work to keep the hall operating.
“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.”
