VILLAGERS have celebrated a milestone anniversary of their millennium green.
Clayton West was one of 23 pilot schemes given lottery cash in 1996 to create a new public space.
The former farming site off High Street, now known as Kaye’s Millennium Green, was transformed by a £40,000 makeover in the run up to the year 2000.
Children from Kaye’s First School held a picnic at the site to mark its birthday.
More than 170 children were entertained by the Rapide Brothers with a programme of clowning and circus skills.
Trustee, Chris Cowen, said: “When the work was done for the opening in 2000 the children of Kaye’s School had quite a significant involvement – after all John Kaye was also instrumental in providing their school.”
