Court Lane Allotments Spring Fair ~ Sunday 17th May 2015 11-3

Less than two weeks to go until our annual Spring Fair on Sunday 17th May 2015. Opening times 11am until 3pm. We are sure it is going to be our biggest and best ever event at Court Lane Allotments.

On the grass at the top of the site will be a range of craft and charity stalls. There will be more stalls than ever, with some familiar faces and some stallholders joining us for the first time. When you have had a browse, try your aim at football crazy & tin can alley.

The younger children will not be left out with face painting. Then let them meet the donkeys from The Donkey Sanctuary.

In the centre of the site you can meet the chickens, buy free-range eggs and local honey, and come face to face with live honey bees (weather permitting).

Our own plant stall will be offering a selection of home grown vegetable plants for you to try your hand at growing your own, along with trays of popular bedding plants and shrubs.

Step inside the food & drinks marquee to find a mouth-watering array of local artisan produce, grab a seat and treat yourself to a slice of homemade cake and coffee, or try one of our fabulous hot British pork baps with a choice of trimmings (don’t leave it too late as these sell out very quickly).

Come along and have a great day out.

You will be helping us to support local charities like the League of Friends for John Taylor Hospice and REAP who look after our Community Garden.
