Nottinghamshire Police’s Drug Support Team donated the equipment yesterday (Wednesday 15 January 2020), which includes Canna Terra fertiliser, brooms, wire fencing and other tools.

Police Sergeant Alistair Moreland, of Nottinghamshire Police’s Drug Support Team, said: “Stonebridge City Farm is a special place in our city and something to be proud of.

“We are committed to serving our communities and this is a brilliant example of how the equipment used for a crime can be repurposed for good.

“I am very pleased that we have been able to donate this equipment and I hope the farm gets good use out of it.

“We regularly donate equipment to Stonebridge and we are proud to support their great cause in whatever way we can.”

Peter Armitage, General Manager at Stonebridge City Farm, said: “This is a great example of community cohesion and different parties coming together to achieve something special.

“We are so grateful for the equipment and goods that are donated to us from Nottinghamshire Police around three to four times a year as it really helps with the running of Stonebridge City Farm.

“It is a brilliant use of something that would otherwise be thrown away or destroyed.”
