Allotment shop managers from all over Yorkshire were invited to an open day at Acorn Garden Supplies in Bingley. Tom Walters (hut manager), Mike Oldfield (treasurer) and Caroline Bush went to see what they had that would be good to sell in our shop. We came away with, amongst other things, 100m of black weed suppressing thick fabric and 25kg of bird seed and a good idea of their prices for later deliveries.
The trip was not without its perks, Acorn kindly provided its allotment customers with a meal of pie and peas in a local transport cafe. As you can see below, this went down very well indeed.
