Trumpington Allotment Society marks 75 years
Trumpington Allotment Society held an open day at its Foster Road site last Saturday (July 9).
Held to celebrate the society’s 75th anniversary, activities included an allotment trail, building a bug hotel, crafting, and playing the human fruit machine, and there were also guided tours of the vegetable allotments, the community polytunnel, the apiary, and the chicken plots.
Displays included a history of the allotments since the formation of the society in 1947 and the tower of flowers created by Trumpington Stitchers, as well as stalls set up by the likes of Trumpington Community Orchard and the Wildlife Trust.
