The Sutton Cheney Allotment Society's memorial garden, which has opened on a former piece of wasteland next to the Blacksmith Lane allotments, was made possible thanks to a £1,500 Leicestershire County Council grant, inLoughborough.com reported.
According to the website, the grant has been used to fund a number of new garden features including a lawned area, a gravel path, a picnic area and a bench.
Homeowners and organisations seeking to improve garden areas could also choose to erect stylish garden buildings like a log cabin or summer house.
The garden was created in memory of a Mrs Wynne, who gave the land to the village in the 1960s.
"This garden should prove to be a popular venue for local people. It just shows what communities can achieve, by working with their community forum and deciding how to spend the cash provided by the county council," commented Councillor Kevin Morrell.
