Back in mid-July we were invited for a socially distanced chat with Janet and Pat from the Parish Council to share ideas on new ways that Grange Field could be used by the community (more on that in a future post). It was a fortuitous meeting because Pat is on the Allotment Committee and since the early days of the Friends of CK we’ve loved the idea of a Community Allotment.

An elevator pitch and quick walk to Sappercombe Lane Allotments later, we were invited to put in a formal request for a plot and less than two weeks later we had agreement from the Parish and were able to start telling the local community about the project via our local gardening group, CK Gardeners Support and Swaps.
