A green open space in Bulwell has been given a £100,000 transformation.

The former landfill site in Hoewood Road has a new lease of life and a new name, Bulwell Community Meadow, thanks to the funding from WREN (Waste Recycling Environmental Ltd).

The project has been championed by Graham Allen MP, led by Nottingham City Council and supported by local people, including children at Rufford School.

Work carried out over the past year to improve the site includes the addition of paths, both formal pathways and softer mown rides along with a wildflower meadow.
