A once derelict piece of land has been transformed into acommunity garden.

The Safe Garden Project behind Shiregreen United Reformed Church, on Valentine Crescent, in Shiregreen, has been given a new lease of life after fruit trees, peas, beans and flowers were planted.

A Strawberry Tea party was held to mark completion of the £10,250 scheme funded by Veolia Environmental Trust, Co-Operative Membership Community Fund, Sanctuary Housing and the Community Assembly.

Project leader Ian Lucraft said: “The garden will be a sunny, open, relaxed and safe area in one of the most deprived communities in the country, where people of all ages can sit and enjoy a cup of tea, play games or help to grow plants.

“Many members cannot maintain their own gardens, so it will be great for them.”
