Two local organizations were strengthened by funding from a Lichfield retailer.

The 6th Lichfield Scouts received £ 1,000 from Central England Co-op to upgrade their hut, while Streethay Primary School received £ 940 to help develop a garden and forest school.

The money was paid from the company’s community dividend fund.

Charles Trivett, of the 6th Lichfield Scouts, said:

“In September, a new section was created to accommodate four- and five-year-olds, known as Squirrels. Because the section is so new and the needs of the children are different from those of the older members of the Scout movement, a lot of investment to prepare for our siege.

“This grant allowed us to perform a complete squirrel health and safety check, provide an appropriate storage cabinet to store all of their fun activity materials, and obtain appropriate storage boxes for all kinds of activities. ‘craft equipment. “
