This cash will go towards berthing fees for two training boats at Fleetwood Marina and 20 camping beds which can be used for weekend camps.

Meanwhile another £454 will fund the purchase and installation of a new large capacity litter bin at Fiveways Garage, through the council’s street cleansing department.
