Hoole Allotments and Gardens 

100th Anniversary Open Day Sunday 16th July 

centenary, 100 years of allotments in Hoole, well worth a celebration.

This year the gates open at 10.30am and the Lord Mayor of Chester, Councillor Razia Daniels will officially open the event at 11am. So come along early, let us have a large crowd to make this event a great success and a memorable occasion.

This year there will be more activities and stall than in previous years. we will have the popular tea and cake stall, as well as burgers and bacon butties. The plant stall, the allotment shop and the jam stall will give you the opportunity to purchase items, while you can also learn to tie knots or have your face painted as well as looking inside a beehive and learning about bees. Another new stall is a bar selling beer and wine.

The Cheshire Waste Reduction Volunteers will have a stall, so you can learn about composting and explore environmentally friendly ideas. Hoole Community Centre will also attend promoting volunteering in the community.

This year we will have entertainment as well, a barbers shop quartet and a choir, along with a short performance by the "Red Barrows", you won't have to strain your neck looking in to the sky, the action will be at ground level.

As we have done in previous years, we are raising money for the Hospice of the Good Shepherd, so please come along to have a good time and help us support this charity.

Jam, jam jars and plants - the jam and plants sell well on our stalls, so if you can make some jam we can sell that would be great. If you have jam jars and prefer to give them to us to fill then that would also be very helpful. If you have a a few spare plants or would like to grow extra ones for us to sell at the open day, we would be delighted.

If you can help with the open day, then please contact us via the shop or by speaking to any committee member. You could also use the contact details on this web site.

Many thanks
