Claylands Community Garden Project
The Committee secured funding in 2011 for a Community Garden covering the two derelict plots adjacent to the car park.
CAGS needed to raise a minimum of £2,000 towards the project and achieved this amount. Combined with help from many local supporters including NottsCC, Business Link, the Big Lottery Fund and our County and District Councillors, the Garden was built over four months from October 2011 to January 2012.

What was the plan?
These plots were used by Luigi Bianco for over 50 years and gradually fell into disrepair and looked a bit sad (as you can see below). Sadly, Luigi passed away in 2009 and is missed by many of the old gardeners and friends at Claylands, but now, the plots are restored and in use.
