The volunteer-run Melton Community Allotment Project is having an open morning on Saturday, July 4 (10am-noon) to celebrate its official opening.
The event will take place at Melton Country park (back of Doctors Lane, near Scalford Brook play park). Activities will include pot painting, planting, children’s and family activities and a free barbecue.
A spokeswoman for the project, which is designed to get local people involved and growing, said: “We’re hoping to attract people and groups that would like to use the space to grow as well as volunteers able to pass on their knowledge to others and help keep things growing.
“We would also like to thank the Co-op for sponsoring the barbecue, Countrywide stores for the donation of tools and the Melton Building Society for their continued support.”
