Royal celebrations at our community allotment

Our community allotment turned red, white and blue this week in honour of the Queen’s Jubilee.

Volunteers came together to make their own jubilee-themed planters, led by local floral designer Emma from Wild Alice, and all under the watchful eye of our own (handcrafted) Queen!

Not even the rain dampened spirits, as the keen gardeners ‘kept calm and carried on’ with their colourful creations.


The Jubilee theme continues throughout the allotment with bunting, decorated planters, and a huge pop-pom Union Jack and crown created by volunteers and supporters of Walton Charity.

The community allotment is a place for people of all walks of life to come together, socialise and learn new skills. It has gone from strength to strength in recent years and was a lifeline for many of the volunteers during the pandemic. They are now enjoying being back together face-to-face and are excited by the prospect of taking part in the world-famous Hampton Court Flower Show later this summer, where they will exhibit a mini replica of the allotment.
