Crunch on the way to a wedding!

Oh dear, there are quite regular road accidents on this junction. Was sitting on the top deck of the bus, on the way back from town, and saw yet another one.

What a shame though, on the way to a wedding.

Nottingham Squatting Project, The Tidy-Up

Nottingham Squatting Project, The Tidy-Up
A building empty for many years has been occupied. The neighbours constantly fed up with the council inaction, a mess in the garden, drug abusers round the back of the property, windows smashed. Not something you would like to live next door to. Thus, the group has much community support, and now they're secure in their new home, there is much tidying up to do and this has already begun.

10 days ago, these folks squatted a building that had been empty for seven years.

Over the last week, they had a tidy of the rubbish out of the garden, shooo'd away the drug abusers out of the yard, painted out the grafitti, got rid of the needles found around and about. Started fixing aspects of the house, both for security, and to make the house more comfortable.

And the City Councils response. A Notice to Quit, served on friday afternoon.

So, advice is being sought, a petition is being organised, already signed by many local residence who remember what the place has looked like before the squatters moved in.

But anyway, life goes on ......

On sunday 21st August, the house continue to make improvements. Rubbish having been cleared up, a some community gardening was being laid on for many of us, who wanted to help.

Ideas and plant donations continue to be most welcome.

The Nottingham Live Music Festival is a series of four one day music and arts events aiming to deliver a fresh approach to festivals in the inner city with the goals of strengthening community pride and opening new doors for musicians and artists to show their work in the local community. Showcasing some of the community’s most creative local bands, artists, storytellers and performing artists for your entertainment. Each day has a different line up of local bands to suit many tastes so please check the gigs page for details. We will be decorating the Arboretum this year and on display around the park will be plenty of butterflies decorated by children from the schools involved in our Awareness Project.

This is an event designed to help local artists and musicians achieve some recognition and to benefit the local community as a whole, so everybody's support is welcomed and appreciated.

If you would like any further information or to contact us then please visit our web page for details.
