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.
Cllr Teresa Heritage, representing Harpenden South West, awarded £1,169 to the Human Milk Foundation for a new medical grade freezer.
St Albans North councillor, Roma Mills, allocated £300 to Marlborough Science Academy to help put on a mental health conference.
