DIGGING & DELVING
We are busy bringing together the last few elements for our booklet and exhibition at the end of October... please join us to celebrate completion of the project.
The 'Digging & Delving Team' are now collating historical information and all of the interesting stories and snippets gathered from town residents, allotmenteers, past and present and from various Essex archives.
There are still some historical gaps that we hope to fill, so please come forward with any family recollections or photos that you would be happy to share and have published in either the booklet or displayed in the exhibition.
The project, made possible by the Heritage Lottery Fund, focusses on the history of the Burnham on Crouch allotments at their Arcadia Road site.
We have had very positive feedback about all of the workshops and have thoroughly enjoyed working with those who have attended and facilitated these activities.
How to break bad habits and
replace them with good ones...
we're in the news!
We had a really successful day when HLF came to Burnham to film Angela with Create & Flourish and highlighted the benefits of taking part in the project.
It was all very exciting...
The finished film has now been published on the Heritage Lottery website:

We have now come to the end of our Platform One art sessions. We have really enjoyed exploring some new arty techniques and honing our existing creative skills.
During our last art workshop we had an open session where there was a choice of materials to use and a chance to finish off some of the artworks that we have enjoyed or wanted to try again.
We are sad to finish but hope that in doing something a bit different we have helped with relaxation, confidence and simply enjoying each others company. We have had really good feedback and it has been a privilege to work alongside all of the participants who attended.
We take pride in offering the opportunity to engage in having 'quality time' by joining with others in doing arty-crafty stuff in an open and non judgemental environment.
It is well documented that personal creativity helps to build emotional wellbeing and resilience and we get regular positive feedback from those who attend. So, we welcome others to join us for our informal and relaxing art workshop sessions. All materials and equipment are provided.
These Art & Craft activities were fully funded by One Stop - Bags of Help
A great big THANK YOU to our local Co-op for donating free supplies of tea bags. It's always good to have a nice cuppa and a chat
So... what is a
Community Interest Company ?
What this means is that we don't work for profit
and run for the benefit of the community.
Any profit that we make is used to run more activities for local people, living and working on the Dengie Peninsula, to enjoy.
We also welcome those who may be happy to travel from other areas in Essex and seasonal residents.
