    Allotment Open Days

    To coincide with National Allotment Week (August 11-19th) and celebrate the wonders of allotment gardening a series of open days and events are being held. Come and see what really goes on behind the gates of the allotment sites!

    There will be sales of allotment-grown vegetables, wildlife displays and entertainment for children. And itís not all about growing things Ė maintaining an allotment is a good way to keep fit whilst enjoying fresh air and gentle exercise - and at around 4 pence per day, itís much cheaper than joining a gym! Everyone is welcome and there will be plenty of entertainment for both children and adults.

    Anyone that is interested in following organic principles of growing fruit and vegetables now has the opportunity to garden with fellow organic gardeners at the only City site that has an organic designated area at the Red Hill Allotments.

    For anyone who is already an allotment user, this is a chance to see what other societies are up to and compare notes.

    Open days will take place at the following allotment society sites:

    Belgrave Allotment Society on their Red Hill site Loughborough Road Saturday 28th July
    Whitehouse Allotment Society on Bonney Road NPE Sunday 5th August
    Washbrook Allotment Society on Welford Road Saturday 11th August
    Rancliffe Allotment Society on Rancliffe Crescent Braunstone Sunday 12th August
    Leicester City Permanent Allotment Society on Rosamund Avenue Braunstone Town Saturday 18th August
    Rowley Fields Allotment Society on Meredith Road Sunday 19th August
    Rookeries Allotment Society on Paget Street Aylestone Sunday 19th August
    Groby Road Allotment Society Sunday 26th August

    Most aim to be open 10.00am until 4.00pm but will vary from site to site.

    For further information telephone Paul Howgill on 0116 222 0259.
