Gardening project awarded £1,000

A community gardening project in Wickham has been awarded more than £1,000 in a Dragons’ Den style pitching challenge.


The Wickham Community Association was awarded £1,138 at the ‘Winnovation’ event, run by Winchester City Council.


Kate Turnbull, from the Wickham Community Association, said: “We are very grateful to the city council for awarding us the money. Winning the money will enable us to put a new roof and doors on our polytunnel, as well as buying the tools we need to be sustainable and offer more opportunities and experiences for people in the garden.”


Charities and groups pitched their projects to the panel, who were looking for ideas that were entrepreneurial, engaging, and enhanced the council’s work. To find out more about the grants, see winchester.gov.uk/grants.
