FIVE new jobs are to be created at a new business and education centre thanks to a £50,000 grant.
Landscaping and grounds maintenance firm Great Grounds is developing a 25-acre site at Tickhill Lane in Dilhorne.
And the company, based in Greater Manchester, has now been awarded funding for the project as part of a business growth programme administered by Staffordshire County Council.
The money will be used to convert barns at the site into an exhibition and meeting venue along with offices to accommodate a business development team.
It will also lead to five new jobs for local people, according to managing director Tony Millar.
He said: “We’re delighted to have been awarded the grant, which has brought forward our plans.
“We are developing a new business centre in Dilhorne alongside an educational facility for primary schools in the area.
