Garden Share

A local resident has contacted us with a view to finding someone to share their garden –
“We live on the cusp of Letchworth and Hitchin and have a very large plot; our idea is to share our garden with someone who would like to create an allotment on our land and in return we would get help with our gardening. We’re very keen to help someone who really wants to grow veg but don’t have the space or can’t get an allotment plot.”
If you are interested, contact us at enquiries@ldga.org.uk and we will put you in touch.

Around 60 people enjoyed our first ever Sausage Sizzle Social. Sausage and mash was followed by apple crumble and custard. This was followed by an after dinner quiz which was won by Team Davidson.
