I take Ruby to swimming lessons at Lenton Leisure Centre. This isn’t the poshest part of Nottingham, but the facilities there are good. It’s run for the benefit of local residents (along with those of us that travel in from slightly further afield) and is a great asset to the people of Lenton.
It’s fair to say that some of the local accommodation was looking rather tired, but Nottingham City Homes have started building some wonderful-looking new houses nearby. They’ve started demolishing some of the old, run-down buildings to make way for brand new homes for the less well-off.
The houses that have been finished look great. They appear to have sustainability built-in, with solar panels on each roof. This whole area will be looking so much better in the near future.
