Not a hedge fund in sight

FORGET hedge funds, allotment holders in Widdrington Station have secured a fence grant.

Parish councillors have approved an award of £1,200 to the Widdrington Station Allotment Society to replace a perimeter fence around plots in Ena Street.

Clerk Richard Smith said: “This application is to replace fencing which is in a state of disrepair. Tenants are in place to start using the plots, but they can’t do that until they secure the perimeter fence.”
