An interpretation board and new signage will be designed to help visitors to the Newton Field Centre and neighbouring Wildlife Meadow.
Kettering Labour councillors Mick Scrimshaw and Eileen Hales pledged £1,500 from their Empowering Councillors and Communities Fund to purchase the information board and safety signage.
An interpretation board is a form of sign displaying information in a vibrant and inviting way while educating and influencing visitors.
The board will be designed by a talented volunteer and safety signage installed to enhance the grassland reserve, which is a habitat designed to attract wildlife and provide a teaching area adjacent to the Rive Ise Site of Special Scientific Interest.
Cllr Scrimshaw said: “It’s not in my division but I’m supporting this project because I recognise that Wildlife Meadow is an extremely popular attraction.
“Children from the Kettering area visit frequently as part of school and college trips.”
Cllr Hales added: “The centre does an incredible amount of good work.”
