Garstang’s highest profile public benefactor - which has given away more than £50,000 to local groups over the past 10 years - has admitted it has little money left for any more community grants.

Numerous organisations have benefitted from Garstang Town Trust’s generosity, including Garstang Sports and Social Club, which was given thousands of pounds to help buy the town’s sports fields from Wyre Council six years ago.

The Trust, a hangover from local government in the latter years of Queen Victoria’s reign, owns several old buildings in Garstang centre and runs the High Street market on Thursdays.
