A YOUTH forum has secured a £4,000 grant towards a community garden in Mablethorpe which they hope will be a fitting tribute to their former project leader, who sadly died earlier this year.

Mablethorpe, Trusthorpe and Sutton on Sea Youth Forum received the funds from Grassroots Funding for the garden which will be dedicated to Martin Walmsley, who worked closely with the youth forum.

Youth forum member Serina Storry said: “This is something that is bringing young and old people together, and it is also a chance to prove that young people can do something positive.”

Lincolnshire County Council youth and community development worker Laura Wilson added: “The youth forum feel that it is very important to develop projects that try and bridge the gap between the generations.”

Work on the community garden is due to begin in the coming weeks, and young people can get involved by contacting Laura Wilson on 01507 427613.
