Following significant work to upgrade our beautiful community allotment, our very popular morning family allotment sessions commenced on Friday, 6 May 2016 and will continue every Friday from 10am – 12 Noon. No need to book.
Local parents say…
“Brilliant idea for kids to get busy and learn that veg do not grow in Supermarkets! Makes mums life more interesting too.”
“What a wonderful idea, just what children need in a city.”
Generously supported by Bermondsey Square Community Fund.
We would like to say a big thank you to all of our supporters because, with your help, our allotment won first place in the public vote for funding from Tesco’s Bags of Help initiative. This funding will make a real difference and will pay for improvements to the allotment.
Tesco have made the following statement about the Bags of Help initiative:
Tesco teamed up with Groundwork to launch its Bags of Help initiative across England and Wales.
The scheme has seen three community groups and projects in each region awarded grants of £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 – all raised from the 5p bag charge. Bags of Help offers community groups and projects in each of Tesco’s 390 regions across the UK a share of revenue generated from the five pence charge levied on single-use carrier bags. The public voted in store to decide which local groups should receive the £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 awards.Launch Gallery
