Check out the amazing transformation of the communal spaces around Balin House, Long Lane. Volunteers began work three years ago to create a splendid community garden – Beautiful Balin!
The allotments are still open and will remain so until we are advised otherwise. However our monthly Sunday workdays are postponed until further notice.

Come and join our free community allotment workdays every 3rd Sunday of the month from 11am to 2pm. Meet other gardeners and learn about growing and planting together.
Our allotments have a very low annual subscription of £5 should you wish to take on a personalised plot or raised bed. We are keen to keep this as low as possible to make sure that nobody is excluded from having a plot to grow vegetables. There’s always spaces available.
However, this does mean that we all have a responsibility to come along to the monthly allotment workdays for an hour or two to help out. Or, come along and meet our small friendly Committee – we need your ideas to keep things running.
We don’t have any paid workers, so please come along on the third Sunday of each month and help out – it’s fun! Continue reading
Thanks to all who came along to prepare for Christmas on the allotment today and to Anna for sharing all her floristry skills. Our next community workday will be on 19th January next year!!
