The Wayland Partnership Development Trust is kick-starting a new community project after scoring funding from the People's Postcode Lottery.
The trust received £18,079 from the Postcode Local Trust which it plans to put towards a one year environmental project to improve the area's green spaces.
Growing Wayland Together will involve identifying small unused areas of land which could be used for environmental projects such as tree planting, wildflower sowing or installing wildlife homes.
The trust plans to form steering and working groups, then map the area to see where land is available.
The identified areas will then be presented to the public to decide which areas the trust will work on. The aim of the project is to develop one area in each community – 14 in total – working with parish councils, churches and other local partners.

Suzanne Rhind, business and community development manager at the Wayland Partnership, said: 'This very practical project across the whole of the Wayland area will not only improve local green spaces and increase pride in the community, but that will also give people new skills and provide new opportunities to make friends.'
