Ashtons Green Community Allotments have qualified for the Tesco Bags of Help scheme during September and October.
Paul Llewellyn from the community group said “If we are lucky enough to win, the money will go to buy a petrol generator and petrol hedge cutters”.
“These items would prove invaluable to us as their are many people that attend the allotments for various community uses who would benefit highly from the use of these items”
“We also have a lot of elderly tenants on poultry and horticultural allotments where these items would be a vital asset”
Paul added “We have some events on that may also be of interest to people.”
“We have an open day at the allotment on 16th September. Midday to 4pm. Tea, coffee and cakes in support of Macmillan.
“The annual Ashtons Green Allotment Halloween Party will be on again this year. We all hope to see lots of you there”
When you visit one of the Tesco’s below you’ll be given a token at the checkout, which you can then use to vote for them. The voting ends at the end of October. Be sure to ask for a token.
