A LEEK shop has been awarded a £4,000 grant to refurbish and upgrade its timber sash windows.
The Moorlands Partnership Board, run by Staffordshire Moorlands District Council, has awarded the cash to refurbish and upgrade the existing windows on the Grade II-listed building at 22 Market Place, presently occupied by Oxfam.
A report to councillors by executive director, Dai Larner, said: "The grant application seeks assistance with the cost of refurbishing and upgrading the existing timber sash windows at 22 Market Place in Leek, which are in a serious state of disrepair with broken panes and decaying frames.
"The Grade-II listed building stands prominently in the Market Place.
"Oxfam occupies the lower floor retail unit with the upper floors being rented accommodation."
Councillors have approved a grant of £4,000 towards the £11,349 cost of the project.
