Bootham Stray Allotments Open Day

Open Day at Bootham Stray Allotments 
Sunday 23rd June
12.00pm - 2.00pm 

In July 2011 Bootham Stray Allotments Association were awarded a £50,000 grant from the Big Lottery Fund, to rejuvenate the allotments and create a community area. 

As the project is now drawing to a close they would like to take the opportunity to invite members of the allotment and gardening community  to an Open Day. There will be a display showing how the project has changed the site, with people available to talk through the application process should anyone be interested in applying for a grant themselves. 

There will also be activities and stalls to keep the whole family entertained: 
Tombola & raffle
Cakes & refreshments
Face painting & scarecrow making
