News about the Centenary book project

Photo shoot 19/20 September

We are pleased to say that the project is taking shape nicely. We have a team in place comprising Susan Saunders, Janet Baylis, Katie Downham and James Bell, supported by Committee member Jenny Bourne.

The book will be part history telling the story of our one hundred year existence, and allotment life and how it has changed over the decades. We’re already putting together a photo library and the writing is underway.

Photo shoot: Weekend 19-20 September

James and Katie will be at the allotments taking photos of plots and plotholders. See the poster above for more information.

The Plotholder Newsletter online archive

Thanks to Mark Buckley and Katie Downham the complete backrun of the Plotholder Newsletter is now available on this website. It’s a fascinating read and a treasure trove of community life from 1998- 2015.
