As some of you may already know, sadly, funding has now come to an end for our DIG FOR LIFE project worker, Lauren Kinnersley. 2011 was a fabulous year in terms of what we were able to achieve at the allotment in encouraging more groups to visit the site and become involved. This has been largely a result of successful funding bids, the efforts of Lauren, combined with valued support and enthusiasm from the Dig In volunteers.
We still hope to continue working with Lauren in some capacity in the future as funding permits and on behalf of the volunteers, management committee and everyone connected with the Dig In project, wish her every success for the future. We will certainly miss you Lauren.
Although project funding may be more limited this year, we are determined to continue our success in involving and encouraging more of the local community to encompass a healthier lifestyle, using whatever resources are available. We are still going forward with our plans for a composting toilet on the site, and we are currently creating a raised bed area to provide a safe growing space for children accompanied by a childminder group.
