Improvements to green space at a former Herefordshire quarry have been completed.

A £53,000 renovation project of the 17-acre area in Tupsley includes new footpaths, railings, improved access and site repairs.

Funding came from the Central Tupsley Community Group, Hereford City Council and Herefordshire Council.

The Veolia Environmental Trust also awarded £34,519 through the Landfill Communities Fund.

The project was led by the Central Tupsley Community Group and work started last month.

The site is divided into a dog exercise area, a play area, a nature reserve and a large open grassed area including two football pitches.

Chair of the community group, Cllr Jim Kenyon, said: "These improvements will mean an increased number of people from Tupsley and across the city can use and enjoy the quarry and the space and facilities it offers."
