Open Day 17th August.

The BHLGCIC  Open Day was held on Saturday 17th August 2019.


As part of National Allotments Week for 2019, once again we opened up our Lower Queens Road Allotment Site for everyone to come along to meet our plot holders, see what we grow and share knowledge.

The theme this year was ‘Shared Harvest’. The day went very well with at least twice as many people visiting as the previous year, including a good mix of plot holders, their families, friends and first time visitors who came along to experience a little of fruit and vegetable gardening
