There was a fantastic turn out and members were entertained by great tunes from Happy Daze Band. The Rev Andrew Dowsett blessed the allotment and reminded everyone that life is all about community with one another. A special thanks to all the volunteers who helped with this project and a special thanks to Teresa for her wonderful allotment cake.
