Dig deep for community allotment
MANGOTSFIELD School has created a community allotment and is appealing for equipment and support.
Students plan to plant potatoes and herbs and also aim to recycle plastic bottles to make a bottle greenhouse.
Fundraising activities including a cake sale and a raffle are being organised to raise money for equipment.
The biggest expense will be a fence to protect the area. The school is also looking for unwanted garden items such as old decking to make raised beds, water butts, forks, spades, pots, string, cable ties, old paving slabs and compost bins.
The first “community dig” has already taken place - look out for details of the next one. If you can help, please contact Mrs J Poole at the school.
