Do you enjoy the outdoors?

Are you interested in local food?

Would you like to meet other people and do something practical?

If you answered ‘yes’ to any of the above then perhaps you’d like to help us prepare an allotment to grow food for a community café?

Café Sneinton, a community café based at Sneinton Hermitage Community Centre on Saturdays (for the past two years), has recently gained an allotment to begin growing food to serve at the café.

We’re going to be down at the site this Sunday from 11am – 2pm to start preparing some of the beds ready to plant in. Could you spare a couple of hours to come and help out?

We’re hoping to have some lunch down on the site too!

The allotment is based on Sneinton Dale and you can get there by taking the 23 or 24 bus from Lower Parliament Street in town and get off at the stop just after the Police Station (We’ll meet you at the bus stop). If you’re aged 16-25 years then we can reimburse your travel expenses and we’ll supply gloves, tools etc. Just wear tough footwear and clothes that you don’t mind getting a bit muddy!

If you can lend a hand, please contact Rachel on 0115 9708200/ 07909 942163 or e-mail Rachel@partnershipcouncil.co.uk

The government is getting ready for a massive sell – off of our national forests to private firms. This could mean ancient woodlands are chopped down and destroyed.

But they need to push new laws through Parliament before these plans can go ahead. That means we have time to stop them.

Sign the petition now to tell the goverment to “save our forests”.


10am to 1pm

Sprout are teaming up with Lenton & Dunkirk Partnership Forum and British Waterways to plan a day of action, cleaning up the canal in Dunkirk.

We really need volunteers to join us and make this happen.

Some of the school children from Dunkirk Primary School will be joining us for an hour of the clean up, as it was their school council who identified the mess around the canal as an eyesore and something that they’d like to see improved in the area.

Please get in touch if you can spare a couple hours on Tuesday 15th February from 10am to 1pm to join in with the clear up and make the canal side better for people who visit the canal or live in the area as well as for the wildlife that lives there.

Gloves, equipment and light refreshments will be provided on the day and if you live outside the area and are aged between 16 – 25 years then we can reimburse your travel expenses.

Please join in to make this happen. British Waterways are keen to eventually allow some of the land to be used for growing wild flowers and even fruit and vegetables!!! But first we need to get rid of some of the grot!

Contact rachel@partnershipcouncil.co.uk

Tel: 0115 970 8200 for more information and to let us know if you can make it. We need to get an idea of numbers to expect.
