Giant sculptures for a clean green city

Giant topiary-like sculptures have been installed in the Old Market Square for the summer an eye-catching artwork to celebrate Nottinghams clean, green credentials and to encourage shoppers to help keep it that way.

The sculptures, made by Notts company Shipshape Arts, have been commissioned by Nottingham City Council and Nottingham Business Improvement District (BID). They depict a grandmother and grandson sweeping, and encourage people to consider: If every man would sweep his own doorstep and look after his local green space, the city would be even cleaner and greener.

Fifty green neighbourhoods

Fifty groups across the city have entered the 'It's Your Neighbourhood' awards - a non-competitive scheme run by the Royal Horticultural Society to celebrate the work of people who are making their area a greener, cleaner and friendlier place to live.  They include community centres, streets, sheltered housing schemes and community gardens.

Volunteer assessors - including Horticulture students from Nottingham Trent University's Brackenhurst campus - will visit each group in July.
