Nature site now looking green and clean
A team of volunteers cleared lorry-loads of green waste from an overgrown nature site.
Environment charity Groundwork and six members of the public cut away the plants that were taking over the site known as Piggy's Hollow, in Shady Lane, Evington.
They were working to create a wildflower meadow on the site, which belongs to Leicester City Council and was once the site of a medieval manor house and fishponds.
The city council recently appealed in the Mercury for people to lend a hand and join the gardening day on Monday.

Councillor Piara Singh Clair, assistant city mayor for heritage, said: "There were six volunteers who came to help out and they did really good work clearing a large part of the site.
"There were a few lorry-loads of green waste removed from the site and there will be a similar clearing session on Friday, August 24."
