A great little document about the benefits to bio-diversity that allotments give to our towns and cities.

  • Hi, my name is Andrew Amos and I run the allotment shop at Roedale valley allotments in Hollingdean, the second largest site in the city. I have been shop manager now for over seven years. When I and my lovely volunteers took over the shop there was one building which was full of chemicals. It was a beautiful Victorian beach hut which had been given to us in 1940 during the war when they were clearing the beaches so they could spot any feared German invasion which thankfully never happened. Anyway it took us quite a while to get rid of all the chemicals some of which had been banned for over ten years and then we had to decide what to do with the Victorian beach hut. So with funding from B.H.A.F we clad the outside, re felted the roof, painted the inside and bought a gas hob to make tea and turned the evil chemical shed into a beautiful tearoom and community meeting place hosting many very well attended events. Why an I telling you all of this you may ask? Because chemicals are bad and tea is good.x
