Allotments Open Day 2021
Wokingham Town Council’s annual allotments open day was held on Saturday 14th August 2021 at Ormonde Road allotment site. The afternoon was co-hosted by Wokingham Horticultural Association (WHA). Especial thanks to Sheila McKeand and Pauline MacBrayne for bringing everything together.
Allotment gardeners and residents thinking of renting a plot were treated to a fine spread of home-made cakes and pastries.
The ‘No Strings Attached’ Ukulele Band serenaded us with their take on many popular songs and Town Mayor Cllr Tony Lack cut the ribbon on WHA’s revamped trading store.
The weather was kind as children filled a deluxe bug hotel with all manner of comfy bedding for ladybirds and their many insect chums. Special thanks to Tim Rollinson who built the 5* accommodation.
