ASDA Cheque Presentation

Dig In were presented with a cheque for £50 last Saturday, following our success in the ASDA Community Life token awards scheme. Many thanks to ASDA Long Eaton and all those who supported us with tokens.

Make a Collage Workshop

Dig In volunteers demonstrated their artistic skills by creating collages in the first of Joyce Killowe's art and craft workshops at Dig In.

The Dig In polytunnel doubled as an indoor art studio and we all sampled some of Mary's tasty homemade Rhubarb cake during the break. A wonderful time was had by all.

A Busy Week at Dig In!

Spring has really sprung for local children visiting Dig In last week. Stapleford and Draycott childminder groups, and Albany Infant and Nursery School got stuck into gardening, enjoyed pond-dipping, gardening crafts and a Spring Treasure Hunt in lovely spring sunshine.

Later in the week Albany Junior School’s School Parliament sent a deputation to taste rhubarb and rocket and to make flatbreads. Rhubarb got a thumbs-up though rocket did cause a few pulled faces... but they did give it a try!

Thanks to all for such a fun week!
