Volunteers helped clear debris at the Copinger Road allotments for the project, which offers school children in the city the opportunity to grow plants and vegetables.

Having only one full-time member of staff on site, the project relied on volunteers to help clear 20 years worth of weeds, bricks and fly-tipping.

The Council Leader then joined councillor Dale Keeling in planting a apple tree for the apple orchard, which is part of the project.
