We’re taking part in a special event for Volunteers Week 2016, organised by Volunteering Kirklees. Local groups have been asked to apply for a share of the You and Your Community funding – and the projects with the most votes on the day will win.

Allotment Volunteers Open Day – Sunday 12th June 2016

Growing Newsome Community Allotment

Allotment Volunteers Open Day
Sunday 12th June 2016
From 10am to 12 noon

Growing Newsome Community Allotment
entrance between 67 & 69 Ashenhurst Avenue, Newsome, Huddersfield HD4 6PX

Can you spare an hour or two? We’re looking for new volunteers to join us at our community allotment. From sitting down sowing some seeds in our potting shed to doing some digging or helping with DIY tasks, there’s something to suit everyone. It’s a great way to learn and to meet people, or just to spend some quiet time outdoors.

If you’re interested in helping out, please come along to our Sunday morning gathering to celebrate Volunteers Week 2016. You can have a look around, join in some practical allotment activities to give it a try, ask questions, and meet other local growers.

Refreshments are provided and we have space under cover in case it rains.
