RSPB Visit – Details from a Survey of the Allotments

We’re lucky to have lots of wildlife on the allotments and we love hearing from our tenants when they spot something exciting. If you’re a tenant or visitor at St Anns Allotments and you ever get a chance to take a photo, feel free to send it to us or share on our Facebook page.

We had a visit from The RSPB on Tuesday 19th March to do a survey of the allotments. The results are as follows:


Tree Planting on Saturday 17th November


Last weekend 170 trees were planted by a team of 8 volunteers in our wildlife area. We’ll be using part of it as a hazel coppice.

Tree planting is loads of fun, and we’ll be about this Saturday 17th November from 10am – 2pm if you’d like to join us! Everyone is welcome.

We’ll provide hot drinks, but please bring lunch. Take care to wear solid footwear, warm clothes and gloves if you have them.

We’ll be meeting at the Ransom Road entrance at 10am.

For more information, call the office on 0115 911 0207

We look forward to seeing you there!
