OUR LANE Project - how to improve your neighbourhood in simple steps
The group has developed a community space in the stalled back lane of two blocks of tenements. It creates lots of opportunities for everyone to benefit from the space. To raise awareness of the benefits, the group held a range of different events. It organises big community clean ups in Spring, engaging all local groups and residents, and runs a Gardening Club with the Battlefield Primary School. The group recycles, repurposes items and is solely self-funded. The space is 5,000 square feet, so it still has options to develop.
