Gordon Road Allotments Autumn Fete

After our most successful plant sale to date in May we are organizing an Autumn Fete taking place next month, on Sunday September 11th. 

We are obviously hoping for good weather so that we can serve tea and cake outside and we will also sell our surplus produce, perennials and possibly house plants too. 

We normally can muster up some excellent home made cakes and jams for sale. 

There will be stalls selling bric-a-brac, arts and crafts and we will be having a raffle and instant tombola prizes.

As a bonus there will be guided tours of the allotment site including our wild life plot, which has a healthy slow worm population and our brand new bee plot complete with hives.  By that time the raised bed project, which provides the possibility of gardening for disabled people and also for school children, should be nearly complete.  So there are lots of new things to see even if you have been before. 

Unfortunately we won't be able to use The Piggory for teas as owing to the raised bed project the central path has been rather damaged by heavy vehicles and will be undergoing refurbishment so that disabled people will be able to access the raised bed area.  Teas will therefore be served next door to the shop.

We are hoping that lots of people will come and join us for a very enjoyable afternoon.
