GROUNDWORK Mersey Valley has scooped an award after delivering regeneration work worth £1.75m across Halton.
Staff at the not-for-profit company have landed the Investors in People Award.
Derek Robertson, executive director, said: 'We're going from strength to strength. We are developing innovative projects and bringing in the funding to deliver them.'
The Groundwork team has already enjoyed success in improving the appearance of areas of Widnes and Runcorn since it was established six years ago.
Its current plans include a community orchard, gardening and allotment schemes and a healthy walks programme.
