Community Allotment Volunteers Give Back

Our Community Allotment project has been lucky to have had so much support from many people over the past two years, as we transformed a derelict area of the allotment site into a tranquil haven. So it was a great opportunity to give back and help someone else with a transformation. Thank you to all who came to help with the garden make over at the Caterpillar Pre-school on the St John’s Estate. The garden will be enjoyed by the Caterpillar’s children and other children's groups.
