Community allotment – volunteers wanted

Growing Newsome are looking for more volunteers to join in at our local Community Allotment. From sitting down sowing some seeds in the potting shed to doing some digging or helping with DIY tasks, there’s something to suit everyone. It’s a great way to learn and to meet people, or just to spend some quiet time outdoors. Open every Sunday from 10am to 12 noon and other times too.

We welcome volunteers who can help out with occasional tasks, such as providing transport to fetch compost and other materials for us, or repairing buildings.

Sessions are also available for groups of volunteers, by arrangement.
