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.

Our annual festive rent day and wreath making workshop for is  back!

Members can:

  • pay your rent and enjoy free festive food and Christmas craft activities – from 12noon – 2pm.
  • make a wreath at our workshop for our members and their family/friends using foliage gathered on site – from 2pm – 4pm.

Happy New Year! A new path for Dorset Road Allotments and Leisure Gardens

On 1 January 2021 all our plot holders became members of the new co-operative set up to run Dorset Road Allotments and Leisure Gardens.   This means they each have one share in the new co-operative and an equal say in how the allotment site is run. The new co-operative is called Dorset Road Allotments and Leisure Gardens Limited (Registered Society 4733).

Becoming a co-operative is a milestone for the governance of our site giving us an opportunity to make the site the best it can be working with all our members.

If you want to read more about how our co-operative works, our Rules governing our site are published in the ‘About us’ section of the website.

Happy New Year!
