Cllr Audra Wynter, Nottingham City Council Portfolio Holder for Highways, Transport and Parks, said:

“I am delighted to see the fantastic progress being made on the restoration of the Memorial Gardens.

“The Gardens are of great importance and have been an asset to Nottingham for nearly 100 years.

“In 2019 we completed the World War One Memorial and this additional funding will allow future generations to re-discover the site as a place for contemplation, relaxation and recreation within the local community.”
