It was a pleasure to award Rowen, Eric and the team at Plant Pots and Wellies with an Asda Foundation grant for £1,600 to improve access for the less mobile members of the visitors who regularly help out and use the amazing space at this community allotment.

It truly is one of the friendliest groups in Harlow and it's always good fun when I go along to help them – especially when Pickles the dog is there causing mischief in the flower beds!
