A project to renovate a town hall has secured a £50,000 grant to create a garden at the site.

Work started last year on a £140,000 refurbishment of Dawley Town Hall in Telford, Shropshire.

The new money will pay for a garden planned to be named in memory of one of the project organisers, Diane Morris, who died suddenly on 25 May.

Lighting and sound within the 19th Century hall will also be improved.

The grant includes nearly £40,000 from Veolia Environmental Trust and money from Great Dawley Town Council, Telford College, Friends of Dawley Town Hall and the hall itself.
