The Kings Langley Allotment and Gardens Association (KLAGA) has been awarded National Lottery Community Funding for a project to develop the site.
The funding project will be targeted at their Red Lion Lane Allotment site, to combat anti-social behaviour, promote community relations and improve safety for tenants, by replacing the security fencing and entrance gate.
Chris Pichon, a local Kings Langley resident and member of the KLAGA Committee who has owned a plot at Red Lion Lane for eleven years, has been in charge of the project. Chris thanked the National Lottery Community Fund for their assistance.
He said: “Without their support, projects like ours would never ever get done.” He continued “the process was all done online and the application process not complicated at all”.
Chris said that he was committed to attempting and making significant site changes when he joined the KLAGA Committee last year.
Chris added: “Everyone is absolutely delighted to receive this award, which will dramatically change the site.”
Charles Copperwaite, KLAGA chair, said: “The Committee were proud of the work Chris had done in securing this funding for everyone at Red Lion Lane. The safety and security of our plot holders has been a big concern for the Association for a number of years.”
