Thank You from Doverbeck NSPCC

I just wanted to say a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who participated in the Virtual Open Gardens event which took place during the month of July.  This year we have all had to think laterally to fundraise as the need for NSPCC services is greater than ever, exacerbated by the lockdown.
We raised over £3,300 in total which is absolutely amazing and will benefit the Nottingham Service Centre at Jenny Farr House immensely to continue their work with children here in Nottingham. You can still see the Virtual Open Gardens video by clicking the image above.

If you follow the Doverbeck NSPCC facebook page (, you will see that I have done a 4 mile lap today of Wollaton Hall, together with my daughter, step-daughter and 2 grandsons. In total the committee will have walked 135 miles today to represent every one of the 135 children who benefited from the services of Jenny Farr House last year.  Please like our page for future fundraising announcements. 

And if you are starting to think of innovative Christmas ideas, this year the NSPCC will be bringing out a catalogue of gifts, cards and wrap. Please get in touch with me by email on if you would like to receive and online copy and I will forward it onto you.

Can you spot the amphibian fencing in the latest flyover?

Did you know that the Gedling Access Road will bring a number of ecological benefits to the area?

One of these is the conservation of newts, and to do this, newts must first be trapped to ensure they can be safely moved and protected for years to come. 

Amphibian fencing has been erected to help with this process, so can you spot it on the latest progress flyover? 

Tip: The fencing is the black lines you will see early into the video.

Other progress includes the ongoing earth works at Lambley Lane, which this month, reached a huge milestone!

What do the Gedling Access Road and Olympic swimming pools have in common? 

The answer? Our construction teams have now excavated and moved the amount of earth equivalent to that of 80 Olympic-sized swimming pools!

That’s 200,000 cubic metres to be exact!
