Excitement is growing for Allotment Fortnight!

SEFTON Council's Parks and Green Spaces Team have been busy sprouting plans for a 2 week celebration of all things allotments between 25 September 2017 25 and 8 October 2017. Working along side self managed sites, Allotment Fortnight will highlight various community projects, activities and food bank donation schemes across a number of allotments in the borough. Community open days will take place at 14 allotments, including:- Altcar Road in Formby, Scape Lane Crosby, Beach Road Litherland and Gardener Avenue, Bootle.

Cllr Ian Moncur, Sefton Council's Cabinet Member for Health and Wellbeing, said:- "The Allotment Fortnight is a great way for us to really celebrate our fantastic communities and the work they do at allotments all across Sefton. We have more than 1,700 allotment plots over 14 sites across Sefton so they really are the cream of the crop! During Allotment Fortnight residents are invited to come down between 10.30am and 2.30pm, on each open day and learn more about the sheer wealth of what we do at our sites. Council staff will be on hand throughout all the sites to meet with tenants and those interested in getting more involved with our allotments scheme. We'll also be running a number of food bank collection points during each open day where we encourage anyone with spare fruit, vegetables and produce they may have grown to donate to a local good cause.  Our allotments are not just about growing fruit and veg. They are a brilliant community resource."

If you are a resident of Sefton and would like to rent an allotment call 0151 934 2943 for more information. Spaces are currently readily available at Browns Lane in Netherton.
