Bonfire night- plot holders only event as the nights draw in we come together as an allotment to have a bonfire, homemade food and warm drink to keep the chill out.

Youth organisations- As a society we want to use the allotment to inspire and teach the next generation of gardeners so we open the site to local youth organisations to come see what we do and how food they eat is grown.

If you run a youth group and would like to come on site for a tour please contact us on the site phone to arrange a visit.
