"First time visiting as it was an open day today. Absolutely loved viewing the plots and meeting helpful and interesting people." 

"Lovely, a really good day" 

And from one of our gardeners who opened their plot for the day -

"Sunday was fantastic loads of people turned up, a lot just stayed and stayed,had loads of comments like amazing, fantastic, best allotment we have seen. When you're there regular in the garden I suppose you don't see it how others do. But I loved people taking photos. It was all down to you and your team to organise these open days, well done."
