Budding gardeners! It's time to share your memories ahead of National Allotments Week

We are growing back in time to celebrate a wonderful part of British life.

National Allotments Week starts on August 9 and we are marking the occasion by reflecting on great memories from plots throughout Sunderland and County Durham.

From the Just Let Your Soul group to Red Machine Allotment, we have archive scenes from them all.

National Allotments Week celebrates people with a shared love of healthy fresh fruit and vegetables, and who also love physical exercise and social interaction.

It’s been all that and more on Wearside over the years. We have reminders of Santa visiting a community allotment in Hendon and the opening of a new site at Marley Potts.

Take a look.
