Irene Pacey, manager of Denby’s One Stop store, is pictured here with staff donating £1,000 to Matt Waterfall, of Denby Parish Council, for a new basketball court.

A One Stop spokesman said: ”The Manager, Irene Pacey, and the store team are proud to support the local community by donating £1,000 to Denby Parish Council for the purchase of new equipment on the recreation area on Derby Road via the One Stop Community Awards Scheme.”

The grant will be match-funded by the parish council for the purchase of new basketball posts and nets to give young people another activity area if the caged area at the site is busy. The project follows on from recently installed new seating by the Parish Council to make the area more family friendly and usable by all.
