A team of volunteers helped spruce up a park in Arnold last week in time for it to be used for the borough’s annual Remembrance Day service.
92 people from around the borough answered the call for help from park rangers at Arnot Hill Park and filled over 400 bin bags with fallen leaves during the volunteer day on Wednesday, November 9.
Children from Leo’s nursery and Robert Mellors Primary School also turned out to help with the clean-up.
The bags were collected up and then taken for use at local allotments.
Tools were kindly provided by Frank Key Group and early morning drinks for the volunteers were provided by McDonalds in Arnold.
Adam Hales, urban park ranger for Gedling Borough Council who organised the event, said: “We’d like to thank all those who attended for their support
“It was a nice, sunny day and it was lovely to meet lots of local people.”
