This event will provide an opportunity to hear about how we are investing in the local community, through our innovative and exciting grants programmes and our activities to enable local people to access the world of work.
From the Dolly Parton Imagination Library for the 0-5 year olds, positive activities for 8-17 year olds to a community jobs programme for 18-29 year olds, as well as a community grants programme addressing local priorities, Castle Cavendish is working in partnership with key stakeholders in our locality to improve the quality of life of local residents.
There will also be a chance to find out more about Castle Cavendish’s property portfolio and our sustainable business model; as well as being able to talk to members of the Board about their interesting and rewarding work as Trustees.
The event is taking place at Castle Cavendish Works, Dorking Road, Radford from 6.30pm and we welcome our community partners and local residents from Arboretum, Radford & Park, Dunkirk & Lenton, Wollaton East and Lenton Abbey.

Our community event on Saturday, 4th June was a great success with many stalls and activities for all the family. Our thanks to all friends, partners and volunteers who all came together to celebrate the diversity, cultural heritage of the area.
We had fruit kebabs, a wonderful vegetable curry with Chapatis provided by The Muslim Women's Organisation, tasty Somalian food from the East African Education Centre and the fantastic samosas and vegetable biryani from Nottingham Health Education & Support (NHES). Hot dogs and milk shakes went down a treat from Sweet and Simple not to mention the jam doughnuts from 7th Nottingham Scouts - no-one was allowed to go home hungry!
We were all kept on our toes with badminton and sports skills from Martin Tilling, a rowing machine from The Lenton Centre and an exercise bike from NCH - Fit in the Community.
It was great to have a sit down and enjoy some Mehndi and face painting fun from the dedicated volunteers from NHES.
The kids had a treat thanks to a visit from Nottinghamshire Fire Service and their crew and showed their creativity with cake decorating from Shiefton Youth Group, hook-a-duck from Holy Trinity Church and a craft stall run by our very own Castle Cavendish team. Dr Bike from Nottingham Bikeworks provided advice and maintenance to our cycling friends.
Throughout the afternoon we had a wide range of music from a local DJ - DJ Sholley and Jude from BeatFeet ran drumming workshops, that were hugely popular with all age groups.
Nottingham Arimathea Trust, New Art Exchange, NCC Neighbourhood Team, Nottingam News Centre, Nottingham Play Forum and The Vine Community Centre all had information about their organisations, activities and support they provide in the area.
Thanks should also go to our volunteer team from the University of Nottingham who worked hard along with our staff team here at Castle Cavendish.
