Funding for the Future of Braunstone Gate
We have partnered with Spacehive to help us fund projects, events and invest in our local community. Our aim is to raise £4,000 in the hopes we can put it forward to our local government to ask them to meet our fundraising target.
Like many other community groups, we run on volunteers and donations. Due to COVID we have been limited in both. We hope with this money we can look towards a brighter, green and more prosperous community.

The project will extend existing activities out from our starting point in Braunstone Gate.
The Bede Street community garden and Arch 2 will be used a as hub where residents can access tools to help them grow flowers and food plants in small plots and containers in their neighbourhood and in their own yards.
The garden tool library and free seed shop will be open each Wednesday between 10.00 and 2.00 and each Saturday between 2.00 and 4.00. Opening times could be extended if we get more volunteers.
The tools available will be suitable for a diverse range of gardeners, including adults, children and adults whose mobility is constrained by a physical disability.
Advice leaflets and taught sessions will be provided on the safe use and maintenance of tools and on growing and caring for plants.
The funding will also enable us to continue to pay for the hanging baskets on Braunstone Gate a welcoming site on this street. Doctor Bike sessions will be offered on a monthly basis.
