Projects & Progress

Hadley Road Community Allotment Fundraising Campaign

Hadley Road Community Allotment at CR4 1NU, have obtained planning permission to build a classroom and toilet on their allotment site.

The photos shows current works being undertaken on site for the classroom. The toilet and classroom will be finished by October 2024.

At present, we have 2 plots which have already been earmarked for use by students at a local school and college.

The current footpath is not user friendly hence we need the funds to design and build one to make it accessible for all users by October 2024. We need to raise £20,000 to complete the project. 

This project will be an asset to the community.

We are asking for your support with a donation no matter how much it is.

Photos of what our plots use to look like

Plot 30

Before we took on this allotment as a self managed site, majority of the plots were all not looked after, most plots remained empty, with no care. Bramble bushes took over the plot

Plot 29

After many seasons of cultivation, the land is slowly becoming more workable, here in this photo we have removed all weeds and adding manure ready to plant our vegetables

Plot 3

Everyone on the allotment gave a helping hand to remove large brambles and invasive ivy plants.

With dedication, Joan has transformed the community allotment to a growing haven for the community.
