Greening Wingrove Takes In Arthur’s Hill And Parts Of Fenham

The Greening Wingrove Community Interest Company has extended its boundary to include the new Arthur’s Hill ward area and parts of Fenham. The organisation is now officially known as ‘Greening Wingrove and Arthur’s Hill’.

It follows changes to local government voting areas last year and means we now cover an area extending all the way from the New Mills Estate on Barrack Road all the way up to Two Ball Lonnen in Fenham. People living in the new Wingrove or Arthur’s Hill wards are able to get involved in our work and stand for election to our board. Residents who sign up as members are also offered first choice on discounts, ticket offers and other items that become available from time to time. Membership is free.

Community Venue For Hire

The Bike Garden is located in Nuns Moor Park and is an ideal venue for parties, events, workshops, outdoor activities and group meetings. It is available for as little as £10 an hour to local residents and community groups.

The space boasts a community garden and play area with indoor pavilion and accessible toilets. There’s even an outdoor pizza oven and bicycles for hire. Booking enquiries should be made through the online booking form To visit, contact
