Community Allotment Event, August 2016
A lovely open afternoon today, with many interested visitors and excellent weather.
The refreshment tent was deservedly popular so a massive thank you to all who helped on the day and/or who made the delicious goodies. We made a total of £138.87 in donations from the food/drink, veg and plant sales

Comment from a visitor:
"A big thank you to Jenn and the allotment team for their warm hospitality this afternoon. The allotments looked great and the range of vegetable-based cakes was really impressive and extremely tasty."
