SAVE Our WELLESBOURNE ALLOTMENTS - S.O.W.A.
Become A Friend Of Wellesbourne Allotments
You do not have to be a plot holder to be involved in the campaign to save our village Allotments for future generations to enjoy. Whilst many do not have the time or inclination to grow their own food, they do however feel passionately about protecting the allotment culture in the UK which has been a part of the British way of life for 100’s of years.
Everyone has a skill they can contribute. From a few hours a year to a few hours every month, Friends of Wellesbourne Allotments play a crucial role in supporting the campaign. Whether it’s a maildrop just to your neighbours in your street, writing a one off letter to our local MP’s to creating articles for publication in the Press, collect petition signatures or helping out at community events like the Street Fayre & Open Days, helping out with site maintenance or supporting projects such as the Dementia Friendly Plot. It all ads up and it all matters. Some Friends provide professional skills or expertise such as Photography, Video, Legal, Planning, IT, Social Media, Graphic Design, Bio-Diversification, etc. We welcome any suggestion you may have.
