Digging & Delving : A Potted History of the Burnham-on-Crouch Allotments.
The launch was held at the Station House, where we have our office. We were amazed at how many people joined us.
A big talking point was a huge pumpkin which had been donated by a fellow allotment holder and volunteer, Trev.
We only managed to get the pumpkin from the allotments to the Station House by finding three strong
helpers and a process of rocking, rolling and ramps.
We scooped out the flesh and made three types of pumpkin soup (chilli, coconut and curry). which we all enjoyed on the day along with some very tasty bread donated by Maldon Tescos. The pumpkin, by now a shell, made a great talking point - decorated with ivy and flowers.
If you are interested in finding out more about the project and the workshops we will be running over the next year, then please come along to Burnham Library this Thursday, 10th November at 11am or contact us via our contact page.
