Now for what will be happening at the Gordon Road on Sunday 7th September. We are very excited at being hosts to the National Garden Scheme Open Gardens. It is only relatively recently that allotments have been chosen to stage these events and the organisers considered our site to be outstanding. We have many attractions including our Wild Life Plot, which hosts a colony (if that's the term) of slow worms. There are Raised Beds for the elderly or people with physical disability and others for school children and we also have a Log Cabin accessible by wheelchair for shelter, if the weather turns for the worse, or just to sit and relax and read a book from our gardening library. There are communal facilities to have tea or even to have a barbecue on the Piggery or to cook a meal in he Green Room, situated next to our Trading hut, which supplies useful garden materials at reasonable prices to FHS members. We also sport a wheelchair accessible eco loo; all of this in the most spectacular surroundings. In addition to the entrance fee, all proceeds from the sale of raffle tickets will be donated to the NGS. The NGS collects money for very worthy causes and we are proud to be able to support them.
On the day we will also be selling our own Honey from the hives at Gordon Road as well as home grown produce, cakes and jams. There will be home made cakes and refreshments available for all who wish to partake. We will also be announcing the prizewinners of the Sunflower Competition and distributing the prizes to winners in each category. We hope that as many people as possible can join us and make this event a huge success.
