A charity that creates rural work experience opportunities for adults with learning disabilities has been given a cash boost to help improve its facilities.

The Sunnyside Rural Trust, which has sites in Ivy House Lane, Berkhamsted and New Road, Northchurch, was given £474 from Herts County Councillor Ian Reay’s locality budget.

Councillor Reay said: “Sunnyside Rural Trust does an excellent job in contributing to local food production and providing work experience for vulnerable youngsters.”

The trust will use the money to install wooden fencing around its activity centre to help safeguard the trainees and service users.

Under locality budgets, each county councillor is given £10,000 to spend on community projects.
