6:30pm Thursday 29th May 2014

A GOLF club has transformed its grounds after receiving funding to make environmental improvements.

Grange Park, which hosted the Lancashire Amateur Championships earlier this month have planted 32 large trees around the course.

The grant has also helped them thin over three hectares of existing woodland in order to ensure its future health.

New hedging has been planted around the boundary of the site with help from Carmel College students .

The work was funded by a grant from the St Helens Landscape Fund, managed by The Mersey Forest on behalf of St Helens Borough Council.

The St Helens Landscape Fund is provided by United Utilities, and is a scheme to invest in communities affected by the construction of the West East Link pipeline, which carries water between Prescot and Bury.
