The Dorothy Parkes Centre has secured £2,000 from the Enfinium Community Fund to help with the installation of a pond, wildflower area and vertical green growing wall on our Community Allotment Plot.

The plot, which has seen over 25 varieties of produce grown on it this year thanks to help from over 800 volunteering hours, will be transformed over the winter period in a bid to increase the biodiversity of the plot.

The £2,000 grant will be used to purchase a variety of building materials including timber and various wildflower seeds and pond based plants.
