of £3,372, this has enabled us to finance the groundworks and the purchase of a second hand storage container for
Battery Lane Allotments in Woolston.
It will make such a difference to our members, we will now be able to purchase some tables and chairs to use when we have our social occasions such as our Coffee Morning in the Spring or a Barbecue, previously we have to borrow them.
We are also thinking of starting a small shop for the sale of horticultural items such as compost and fertilisers which will benefit all the tenants on site.
We have a lovely allotment site a real community and we have been told by a member of the National Vegetable Society that it is one of the best sites in the area. There are several willing volunteers who help to maintain the site and we also have the much valued support of Woolston Parish Council. The Association has a very enthusiastic and active Committee and the tenants are friendly and help each other out when required.
We are now waiting for some nice weather so that we can start work on the inside of the container and get it ready for the start of the growing season in the Spring.
Thank you to the Big Lottery Fund for making this possible.
