First Community Spruce of the year: Sunday 13 March 2022 

Each month during the growing season we hold Community Spruce days to undertake site tasks ranging from planting vegetable plants for sale through to trimming hedges, repairing fences and planting wildflowers.

Our first one for 2022 will be held between 11am-1pm on Sunday 13 March.  There will be a range of tasks including seed sowing.

Our allotment site is a co-operative and each member is equally responsible for helping to maintain the site.

We also welcome members of the local community to our Community Spruce days.  They have helped with a range of tasks from planting trees and hedges to litter picking.

Refreshments will be provided.

Christmas Wreaths

We held our annual festive rent day and wreath making workshop on Sunday 5th December.   Here are some of the wonderful creations made during the day.

All the vegetation, from willow and hazel base to greenery and berries were harvested from hedges and trees on site.

A sustainable and fun afternoon’s social event.  Earlier in the day we also had beeswax candle rolling, house plants for sale and paper craft activities.
