Com­mu­nity achieve­ment

Hampshire Life - - Insider's Guide -

A char­ity set up to man­age the Grat­ton, a valu­able shared green recre­ational space in the heart of Sut­ton Scot­ney, has just been recog­nised with The Queens Award for Vol­un­tary Ser­vice. Orig­i­nally set up in 1997, The Grat­ton Trust Char­ity, through the hard work of its many vol­un­teers and the gen­eros­ity of the com­mu­nity, has seen through im­prove­ments of the fa­cil­i­ties which now fea­ture tennis courts, foot­ball pitches, an out­door gym, pav­il­ion, river­side walk, picnic tables and a play area com­plete with zip wire! This lat­est award serves to con­grat­u­late the vol­un­teers and or­gan­is­ers who have de­vel­oped this open space in the Par­ish of Won­ston for the ben­e­fit of all mem­bers of the com­mu­nity.

The award was pre­sented by EastEn­ders star and Na­tional Lot­tery Awards am­bas­sador Nitin Gana­tra, and in­cluded a cov­eted tro­phy and cash prize. The prize will fund a legacy project for Polli:Na­tion, al­low­ing schools across the coun­try to man­age their grounds in the long-term for the ben­e­fit of pol­li­nat­ing insects. pol­li­na­tion.co.uk
