…the new ramp up to the pond dipping platform that’s being built in the wildlife garden? It’s being constructed by one of our plotholders using timber purchased as part of our Lottery funding to improve access to the wildlife garden. There’s also been ground stabilizing material laid to strengthen the paths.
Thank you to everyone who came to our Open Day, helped out or ran a stall.
We had lots of stall holders selling everything from jams and preserves to teddy bears, (including stalls raising money for charity). The Woodcraft Folk were back showing how to cook on an open fire and doing various crafts with the children. Our Beekeepers did an excellent display and were on hand to answer questions and Thames 21 did some pond and river dipping and showed us what was living there. And we had the usual tea, cakes, and BBQ plus lots of kids activities. It was an excellent day!
We are very lucky to have Demi-Chef running children’s cookery classes at Dorset Road Allotments over the Easter holidays. The classes last 3 hours – 1.30pm to 4.30pm and the participants will be taught how to make a savoury and a sweet dish by a qualified cookery teacher.
