Sussex Police has donated £150 to Cherry Tree Court, a sheltered housing scheme in Horam.

The money will be used to plant a garden for residents’ enjoyment and to provide a sanctuary for wildlife.

Tracy Barnett, scheme manager at Cherry Tree Court, said: “I’m pleased to receive this donation from our neighbourhood policing team, which will help us create a wildflower garden with nesting boxes.

“We also want to help preserve the declining bee population, which plays an important part in horticulture and agriculture.”

Police Community Support Officer Ali Shadbolt said: “I’m delighted that the donation will go towards such a worthwhile project, and I’m looking forward to seeing it ‘blossom’ over the coming months.”

The donation comes from the Police Property Act Fund (PPAF), made up of monies received by the police from property confiscated by order of the court and then sold.
