Young Enterprise Award

The Harpenden Trust Community Fund, which supports many organisations in the town with grants totalling around £80,000 annually, was delighted to receive a sponsor’s award from Young Enterprise, which it has been pleased to support for the last nine years.

Young Enterprise has the aim of training young people in business, and this year Sir John Lawes school entered two teams in the St. Albans and Harpenden local area final.

Trust volunteer Steve Pryor received the award (pictured below) on behalf of the Trust.

Greenway Spinney - Pleased to help

The Harpenden Trust is pleased to have again been able to support the hugely hardworking volunteers at the Greenway Spinney as they continue to improve the area.  The pictures show how pathways are being added through the spinney – particularly lovely in the springtime!

The Trust’s 2018 support, the sum of £1,250 from the Community Fund, is for the materials to complete the task;  it follows grants of £500 in 2009 towards planting, £500 in 2015 to replant a hedgerow, £867.80 for the cost of materials to begin the path, and the latest grant of £1,250 for materials to complete the work.

The Trust says: “We are very pleased to help them as their volunteers are so dedicated and do all the work themselves”.  A Trust plaque is displayed on the site.
