Walking in a Winter Wonderland

Although the snow in January was very pretty (we have the photos to prove it!), we have to admit that we are relieved that it’s all melted. No more slipping and sliding on the treacherously icy paths! We’re also happy to have our volunteer sessions back up and running.

Seeing as January is coming to an end, we thought we’d celebrate getting through the first month of 2013 with a few of our favourite snowy pictures. You can see more in our Facebook album.

Walking through the allotments really did feel like walking through a glorious Winter Wonderland!

We checked up on our newly planted trees which were surviving the cold.

Cold Mushrooms

Even the mushrooms couldn’t hide from the snow.


Finally, we couldn’t resist walking past the pear tree on 8th Avenue. Doesn’t it look magnificent silhouetted against the sky?

Live in St Anns? Fill in this questionnaire and you might win £20!

Hi there, my name is David Cook. I’m a student at Nottingham Trent University studying Horticulture and the Designed Environment. I am looking for responses to an online questionnaire.

If I can reach 50 responses, there will be a prize draw to win £20! It only takes 2 minutes to fill in.

The answers for this questionnaire are to be used for a final year university dissertation. The only requirement for you to partake in this questionnaire is that you are currently a resident in St Ann’s.

The reason for collecting this data is to see if the statistics on the area relate to the opinion of the residents.

The people who will view this paper will generally be the lecturers and students at Nottingham Trent University. Copies can be requested if anyone should want to see the paper. All answers will be kept anonymous, the only reason I would need the personal information would be to get in contact with the prize winner.

The questionnaire can be found here…

Thank you for your time in completing this questionnaire. The results will be valuable to my research.
