Lenton Festival and Family Fun Day - Lenton Recreation Ground
Lenton Rec is one of many green flag parks in Nottingham and is very popular with students all year round. Towards the end of the Summer term, local City Councillors along with local residents’ groups and community organisations, organise a festival for the whole community.
In 2019, Robin Hood archery, cricket, tennis, a bouncy castle, and sports day races were enjoyed along with a barbecue and entertainment from school children, dance groups and University societies. The SU Community Officer ran a tombola and the Off Campus Affairs team staffed an information stall all day while the SU Volunteer Centre provided some general stewards to help the day run smoothly.
Community Chest Funding, 2019: £500
