Castle Hill Allotments

Dan was delighted to visit the Castle Hill allotments. Here he was met by Jean and Ken Austen and local councillors Robin Vickery and David Goldsmith.

Jean and Ken showed Dan around some of the allotments highlighting the many different varieties of vegetables and plants that are grown by the allotment holders.
