2013-09-14 Gardeners zig-zagging for community funds

THE Zig Zag Community Garden filled with music and merriment for what has become an annual festival.

After 18 months of gardening afternoons, with neighbours transforming a derelict fly-tipped plot into a colourful garden, the spades and forks were laid to rest and residents took a break from weeding and digging and danced while enjoying home-baked food and live music.

 

Festival time:  Caroline Elmhirst and Julie Walker planted bulbs at the community garden.

Revellers melted marshmallows and baked bread with the 4th Nottingham (St Ann’s Outlaws) Scout group and planted bulbs. There was also face-painting and Samba dancing. Money was raised for the recently-acquired derelict Beacon pub.
