Without volunteers like these and many more besides them, we would not be celebrating raising another Green Flag Community Award for another year.
We are honoured to be receive the award, the international quality mark for parks and green spaces, in the scheme’s Silver Jubilee year.
Green Flag Award Scheme Manager Paul Todd said: “I would like to congratulate everyone involved in making Ashbourne Road District Allotments worthy of a Green Flag Award. To meet the requirements demanded by the scheme is testament to the hard work of the volunteers who do so much to ensure that the site has high standards of horticulture, safety and environmental management and is a place that supports people to live healthy lives.”
Thank you to everyone who contributes to our wonderful haven in Derby.
On October 30th we’re hosting something for the local kids (& bigger kids!) please see poster below.
We’ll be contacting those who have said they’ll help but, if you want to be involved, respond to this post in the comments below.
Members of the Association will soon be receiving an email but as a heads up, we’re looking for plot holders to carve their own pumpkin, create a spooky scare crow or go really mad and decorate the front of their plots so we can create a spooky trail around the site.
In the meantime, if anyone has any surplus pumpkins or squashes please place them on plot 31! Any questions, please email events [at] araa.org.uk
