Ordsall Community Allotments are having their second annual show this Sunday 6 September at 1pm.
Members are competing for the best vegetables and donating their surplus produce to raise money for the allotments so the publiccan take some of the produce home with them.
Tom McMullen, Chair of the Allotment Society, says “this oasis of growth has transformed inner city derelict land into an incredibly important community used space.
“Members are incredibly proud of their achievements, and local school children and community groups
are involved in learning how to grow their own food, which is what its all about”.
Laura Kendall, local parent and finalist in this year’s Salix Homes Community Aim High award, says “Since its been open its really brought everyone together, and shown that we are a strong and proud community. I take kids on the allotment to grow vegetables and they absolutely love it,
and last year they won First Prise for best vegetable patch, which just shows how much work they put in.”
Local group, Ordsall Acapella Singers, having recently celebrated their 10th anniversary, will be performing at 1pm before the City Mayor declares the overall Show winner.
