Simon Gregson (Steve McDonald in Coronation Street) visits the Growing Newsome Community Allotment – media roundup

Simon Gregson with Growing Newsome Thank you very much to Simon Gregson for visiting our community allotment on Tuesday 28th July 2015. He came to see how we’ve spent our Lottery funding to make our community allotment easier for our volunteers to look after. We were also celebrating reaching the Finals of the National Lottery Awards – a huge achievement for our little bunch of food growers. Have a look at our Growing for All Seasons page for more details about our lottery-funded project.

Our thanks to Vicci Moyles from the National Lottery Promotions Unit for organising Simon’s visit, and to all the press and media who turned out on a rainy Tuesday morning to help share our story. For those who have lost track of our mini media frenzy, here’s a roundup of all the links so that you can listen, watch and read again.
