Shaftesbury’s new allotments were opened by the mayor, Councillor Andy Hollingshead, yesterday.
The site to the south of the A30 Salisbury Road includes raised beds for disabled gardeners. The plots are already fully subscribed.
Alfred went along and spoke with the new tenants including David Andrews and Sonya House. Sonya only received the call to say she had been successful with her application yesterday. And by 2pm she was digging away on her plot!
