Inspirational Allotment group turn their hand to poetry!

The community allotment has done more this year than just grow veg. People have been inspired to take part take in many other activities they normally wouldn't have done such as arts and crafts, wildlife watching, foraging, bundles of cooking and now poetry!


As it's National Poetry day we thought we would have a go at doing our own so our allotment volunteers got together and this is what they came up with.


A place of fun!


The allotment is a place of fun

People Laughing in the sun

Come and grow before the snow

Don’t be scared of the unknown

There is always a friendly face to hand

So you'll never feel alone

We grow for health, we grow for wealth

Have a go at growing your own

We eat as often as we can

We are a team that stand proud

They say that team work makes the dream work

Each year we live and dream for bigger and better


Oh how we love to see things bloom

Come and grow before the snow

Time flies by, we say our goodbyes until we meet again
