As you may know ABAS is having the presentation of the annual allotments trophies at Harpers Lane's Open Day on the 10th. of August. The prizes will be presented by Cllr Sufrana Bashir-Ismail the Executive Member at Bolton Council with responsibility for the Allotments Service.
We'd like to hear of any other Allotment Week events that sites may be planning.
3. Open Days - we have two open days on the calendar at present - Harpers Lane on 10th August and Florence Avenue on the 30th August. We'd like to publish an Events Programme if possible so if you could let us have details of shows, open days, etc. then we'll do our best to get the message out.
