THE Willand Community Composting Scheme has given £300 to the First Willand Brownies for high-visy jackets, blankets and neckerchiefs.

The scheme, which started collecting green garden waste in Willand in 1993, has so far donated over £7,000 to local causes.

The scheme needs more volunteers for a couple of hours a week and local organisations can apply for donations if they meet certain criteria.

To donate, call Kevan Davies on 01884-839436.
