The weather was on our side when we opened Muriel Jones Allotments on 5th July as part of the NGS(National Garden Scheme).

A big thanks to all of our plot holders and members who made it such a success. The site looked great and people were impressed. One visitor said, “It certainly lived up to the NGS description in the handbook.”

Visitors chatted to plot holders, ate cake, drank tea and took away ideas. 95 people came through the gate and we raised £660 for NGS charities. It was certainly well worth doing!

Critchill School, who have a plot on the site, did some digging and strimming and chatted to visitors.

New Allotment Benches are Just the Place for a Chat

Posted on 2nd December, by allotments in Events, News. No Comments

Gracewell of Frome has presented Welshmill Allotments with two beautiful new benches. The care home, formerly Rossetti House, and the allotments are neighbours on the banks of the River Frome and they like to share their resources with each other.

Gracewell residents regularly drop over to the allotments to enjoy some gardening on the raised beds, while the allotment association use the care home for meetings. “It’s great to have a friendly relationship with our neighbours,” said Andy Wilson of Frome Allotment Association. “These benches will be used not just by Gracewell residents, but also by pupils at Vallis and St,Louis schools who have plots on the site and by their parents and other visitors. We’re quite a sociable lot !The benches have been sourced locally and are strong enough to last for many years.”
