About this event

Join us in Nottingham to

  • discuss challenges members are facing – and overcoming!
  • participate in a member-led problem-solving session
  • access a free 10-minute one to one advice session with a member of our specialist advice team or Senior Management Team (pre-book by email members@locality.org.uk)
  • be inspired by the fantastic story of the community space you’re visiting
  • learn about our Save our Spaces campaign and how to get involved.

Save our Spaces is Locality’s campaign to save our public buildings and spaces. For all of us. Forever.
We’re calling for a funding pot to help local community groups step-in to save public buildings and spaces for everyone through community ownership.

This event is hosted by the Renewal Trust at St Anne’s Allotments

St Ann’s Allotments, managed by the Renewal Trust, are one of the oldest and largest collections of Victorian detached town gardens in the UK,  Grade 2* listed and a Site of Importance for Nature Conservation. The site has been renovated over the last 10 years, after a 20-year campaign to save the allotments, to conserve the site, improve the gardens as a unique form of social and community heritage, and secure their future.

We look forward to seeing you there!
