AN Outdoor classroom will be created at Meanwood Valley Urban Farm after it won a £10,000 grant from Yorkshire Building Society.

It was one of 15 charities voted to receive a grant from a fund set up to help projects leave a lasting legacy in their communities as part of celebrations for the building society’s 150th anniversary.

Farm director Susan Reddington said: “We are thrilled that our project has been chosen to be funded. I would like to say a huge thank you to all our amazing supporters who voted for the Farm Project and we can’t wait to get started and make a real difference to our community.”
