Bridlington Community Allotment Hopes to Supply Local Foodbanks

Bridlington Community Allotment Hopes to Supply Local Foodbanks

Published by Matthew Pells at 6:01am 29th September 2019.

A new Community allotment scheme in Bridlington is hoping to provide fresh produce for local food banks.

Transition Town Bridlington have started the community allotment on a site near Morrisons.

The idea is to help people learn to grow their own food with any surplus donated to the food banks.

Claire Artley is one of the gardeners involved in the scheme, Claire says they have a number of aims.

The team are meeting each Sunday in September and October between 2 pm and 4 pm to learn about growing food organically. They say the regular meetings also provides an opportunity to meet others, learn new skills and have fun.

The project is open to both experienced gardeners and complete novices, one of their aims to enable people to find out how to work their own allotment. There is also the opportunity to take on a nearby allotment and have support from the group when starting out.

Claire Artley from the project says a wide range of people have got involved.

The community allotment is at the Hilderthorpe Allotment Society-Matson Road Site. The entrance to the site is just behind Morrisons and it is the site off Allotment Walk, Enterprise Way.  There are signs on the shed which show how to find the allotment. 

More details are available on their Facebook page -
