Britain In Bloom UK Finalist 2018

15th July 2018 - NGS Day

 

ALLOTMENTS OPEN DAY

 

On Sunday 15th July from 12 noon to 4pm

Queensgate & Kitchen Lane Allotments

Scarecrow Competition, Bring along a Herb and Fill a Welly Boot

This is part of the educational community awareness of the forth coming Britain in Bloom judging due to take place in August.

 

The event, which is included in the NGS ‘Yellow Book’, is open to local residents, visitors and anyone with an interest in allotments and growing their own produce.  This year will be the seventh time that the event has been held in the town.  The popular Scarecrow competition will take place; this is also open to members of the public and families to take part in.

 

Last year famous the faces of Peter Levy, Paul Hudson, Eleanor Tomlinson, Kyle Evans and Sir Alan Titchmarsh were with us in scarecrow form to add colour and humour to events. So be creative and bring your Scarecrow with you, if it’s a winner it will be meeting the Britain in Bloom judges in August! 

 

The new Medi-Herb community wild garden will be launched with visitors being asked to ‘’bring along a herb to plant’’.  It all helps with the conservation and environmental aims of Britain in Bloom.   Tracey Packer will be giving short interesting talks on medicinal herbs to enlighten our knowledge.  The new Beverley Bird Watch boxes will be hopefully installed for  people to see, this nature watch concept is in keeping with the abundance of birdlike on the allotments and will hopefully encourage a few more birds to nest here in spring. 

 

Alongside these added extras, experienced allotment holders will be on site on the Open Day, and they will be happy to answer visitor’s questions about growing fruit and vegetables, and also give advice on how to get started with an allotment. 

There are 85 varied allotment plots to view on Queensgate, with another 35 on Kitchen Lane, growing a wide variety of fruit, vegetables and flowers. There are paths for easy viewing, with plots on either side.

 

Admission is £3.00, with free entrance for children and Queensgate and Kitchen Lane allotment holders.

Refreshments will be available.

Children must be accompanied by a responsible adult whilst visiting the allotments. Dogs on a lead are allowed.

Some free car parking in marked bays will be provided at Beverley Grammar School, thanks to the kind permission of the school. Alternative parking can be found in and around Beverley.
