We had great pleasure in joining the Nottingham City WI at the Nottingham in Bloom Awards to be presented with an RHS IYN award for Barker Gate Rest Garden.


The RHS It’s Your Neighbourhood (IYN) national campaign supports community groups in cleaning up and making their local environment a greener place, whether it’s the street they live in, or a small patch of communal land needing a revamp.

During the summer, maber worked with the ladies of the City WI to help dig and plant nearly two thousand shrubs and flowers to improve the little pocket park in the heart of the City’s Lace Market area.

Having toiled for lots of hours, on some very hot summer days, we were all chuffed to be rewarded with a Level 4 Certificate.

Prior to the planting, maber’s landscape team had also assisted the WI by providing planting plans for the park.
