Deliver it green…

Nottingham and Devon revamped by stewards

Much of our time in the last couple of months has been spent delivering a number of improvements at Nottingham Cliff Recreation Ground.

Nathan, our apprentice, has been working with young people in the area. They have come up with a list of improvements they would like to see in the park.

DIG stewards have been:

  • Re-siting four bench seats to the side of the kick pitch with paving in front of the benches

  • Repairing, renovating and painting all benches in the park

  • Repainting all the play equipment

  • Cleaning and repainting the park railings

  • Pruning shrubberies

  • Tidying the woodland border to Nottingham Street boundary and sowing wild flower seeds

  • Cleaning up the path edges throughout the park

  • Strimming and tidying overgrowth to fence lines and borders

Devon Gardens has also received a lot of steward attention lately with the railings being repaired and painted, overgrown shrubs pruned back, self set trees cleared, new benches and bins installed, flower beds reinstated and lots of TLC administered by the stewards.

If you would like to get involved at either of these sites then get in touch with your Deliver It Green team on 244 0353.
