A Garstang charity has been awarded by the Queen for their “outstanding voluntary contribution”.

Kepple Lane Park Trust was one of five Lancashire-based winners of The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service,.

The registered charity transformed a once waste disposal site into a place which has won numerous awards including Green Flag status.

Each of the winning groups will receive a certificate signed by The Queen and an exclusive commemorative crystal, presented by Her Majesty’s representative in Lancashire, Lord Shuttleworth KG KCVO, at a special ceremony arranged by the Lieutenancy Office.

Each group also received an invitation for representatives to attend a royal garden party at Buckingham Palace.
