Barnburgh Lane allotments

A COMMUNITY allotment has been created in Goldthorpe to encourage more people to get involved.


The project, based at the Barnburgh Lane allotments, is being funded by the Goldthorpe Development Group and is aimed at those who would not normally think of taking up gardening.


A disabled access is being created and there will also be raised beds so disabled people can tend to vegetables.


Surplus food will be given to vulnerable families and there will also be tips given on how to cook more nutritional meals using the produce.


It has been funded by The Goldthorpe Development Group.
