Community projects in St Albans have been given a cash boost by their respective councillors.

Hertfordshire county councillors have £10,000 a year to spend on projects in their areas through the locality budget scheme, which was launched in 2009.

Sue Featherstone, from St Stephen's, gave £200 to How Wood School to plant flowers in a garden for its Early Years Foundation playground.

St Albans North councillor, Roma Mills, allocated £300 to Marlborough Science Academy to help put on a mental health conference.

She said: "I hope that this event will give local young people the chance to discuss how to support their peers effectively and protect their own mental health."

Additionally, £250 was handed to FoodSmiles St Albans by St Albans Central councillor Chris White. The society is creating two Incredible Edible community gardens in the centre of the city.
