The Project – Potters Den

Would you like to join our project and help with the renovation of our allotment on Cherry Tree Road? We are looking for volunteers to help us clear our site ready for renovation works to take place. Gardening has been proven to have therapeutic benefits by reducing isolation and improving wellbeing, encouraging people to get outside and connect with nature. It also enables people to connect with others within the communities they live.
