Following the success of last year’s Allotment Plot Competition, we’re delighted to announce entries are now open for this year’s event.

Newcastle’s Best Group/Community Allotment Plot

We spoke to Newcastle charity Children’s North East about the importance of their allotment plot at Benwell Lane in giving young people access to nature, and the chance to learn new skills.
