Friends of Peterborough’s Green Back Yard Project launched the campaign to save the site today.

The Green Back Yard project was set up on a long-disused allotment space in central Peterborough, historically what remained of the ancient Rams Fair Meadow. The site is now under threat of residential building development as part of the City Council’s ongoing plans and the tenure of the site is now uncertain.

The award winning project has been developed under the capable leadership of father and daughter team Renny & Sophie Antonelli. The previously disused site has been transformed into a thriving urban garden and is a centre for a diverse range of community activities from arts and music events, green skills training courses to martial arts  – mostly conducted on a voluntary basis  by many hundreds of local people.   The award winning site is a unique and precious community asset which the people of Peterborough need to remain in its current location.
