The Home and Garden Leisure Show ~ Locks Heath Shopping Village ~ Saturday 14/04/18
The Western Wards Allotment Association has just embarked upon a marketing strategy to promote the benefits of home grown produce and the healthier lifestyle that goes with it. Having an allotment is a great way to take control of what goes on your table and how it gets there. If allotment gardening is something that you have thought about, we do have a few vacant plots right now for people to take advantage of. If now is not the right time for you, why not put your name on our waiting list, so you can start growing when the time is right. Waiting lists are very useful, as they allow local authorities to plan ahead and gauge demand for allotment plots. This year we are holding a few events to show people what we can offer. The next event is on Saturday 14th April 2018, from 10.00 - 16.00 at the Locks Heath Shopping Village.
