TWO volunteer community groups are to benefit from a funding injection.

Rossett Environmental Community Action Programme and Chirk Community Forum will receive more than £1,000 between them from Keep Wales Tidy.

The funding comes via the Tidy Towns initiative, which offers financial aid to groups who demonstrate a commitment to restoring their local communities.

Rossett Environmental Community Action Programme received a grant of £515.

This will help its long-term aim of protecting and enhancing the local environment of Rossett.

It plans to buy litter-picking equipment and tools to help carry out access and habitat creation projects and village litter picks.

Chirk Community Forum was awarded £500 and it will use the money to create a sensory garden in the Millennium Gardens in Chirk.
