Community Allotment Open Morning – 8th August 2015

Everyone gets a warm welcome at our allotment – whatever the weather.

We welcomed Corrie’s Simon Gregson recently – he came to see how we’ve spent our Lottery funding to make our community allotment easier for our volunteers to look after. But it’s not just TV stars who get to take the tour.

Please come and have a look around at our next open day:

Community Allotment Open Morning
Saturday 8th August 2015
from 10am to 12 noon

Venue: Ashenhurst Avenue allotments, entrance between 67 & 69 Ashenhurst Avenue, Newsome HD4 6PX

We all look after the allotment together, as none of us could manage an allotment on our own. We share in the planning, sowing and growing – then share out what we pick. We also use some of the produce for meals at our community events.

We are always looking for new volunteers. It’s ideal for anyone who wants to grow on an allotment but needs a bit of help, or anyone who has advice to offer to other growers. Please come along to meet us and find out more.
