On Sunday 28th July we came together at the Hertford Road allotment site to dismantle a disused turkey pen. It was a great community event with over a dozen of us lending a hand to clear the site so it can be used for events in the future.


First the main pen was dismantled and where possible materials were reused around the site by plot holders.

It took a couple of hours of clearing the main pen and disused materials behind the turkey pen.


It was then time for some delicious cake, kindly baked by Halina – coconut and cherry or plum sponge plus tea. There was even enough to take a slice home!

And the finished result, what a transformation!

The next job will be to level out the area and then it’s over to you, what would you like to see the space used for? Covered seating area? Polytunnel? Let us know!
