New tractor for Lover
COMMUNITY spirit is alive and well in Lover where villages have banded together to take over the running of a community field and have now bought a tractor to keep it neat and tidy so events can be held there.
The Lover Green Association have been hard at work securing grants, including £3,000 from Hills Group Ltd, to pay for the machine, while money has also been raised through events including the village's annual garage sale, a safari supper, talent night and donations.
Association chairman Dave Charles said: “Thanks to this grant, together with grants from the Big Lottery Fund and The Community Foundation for Wiltshire & Swindon, we are now in a position to purchase a tractor mower for use by volunteers. “Without this we would have had to employ contractors to cut the grass at considerable expense to the Association, which relies on donations and fundraising in the local community.”
