A further grant of £5,000 towards the project had been awarded by the Royal Wootton Bassett & Cricklade Area Board.
At a ceremony in Devizes Town Hall last Wednesday, Vicky was presented with her award for best community project by Sarah Troughton, President of Community First and HM Lord-Lieutenant of Wiltshire.
Many congratulations to Vicky for her well-deserved award.
