South Gloucestershire Discover Festival 2012.

Members of Blakeney Road Allotments are inviting Patchway residents to join them this Saturday (8th September) for a barbecue and the official opening of new facilities recently installed at the site.

The event, which runs from 12 noon to 4pm, is being staged as part of South Gloucestershire’s Discover festival that gets underway this weekend.

Access to the allotments is via Park Leaze, off Blakeney Avenue. Advice and training on ‘growing your own’ will be available.

STOP PRESS: The Allotment Open Day has unfortunately had to be cancelled!

The newly created Discover festival offers a unique opportunity for residents to find out what makes South Gloucestershire a great place to live and work. Bringing together many successful celebrations in the district, the programme has something for all ages and tastes – including events, talks, walks and workshops celebrating local heritage, local food, local nature, local arts and also special events for life age 50+. Most events are free.

    Was there any reason given, just out of interest?
