We are open

This Sunday (8th July) the allotments will be open to visitors as part of ‘Open Gardens’.

On this one day of the year we will be selling produce grown by allotment holders, together with jam, preserves and many other items.

Please come and join us up Coley Lane, take a look at our plots and you will be made most welcome.

All proceeds are donated to Katherine House Hospice.

Great news for the villages

At Warwick Castle on the 14th September 2017 it was announced that both Colwich & Little Haywood and Great Haywood had achieved gold in the Royal Horticultural Society Britain in Bloom competition this year. This is fantastic news so well done to all who put in so much hard work.

You may be interested to know that the judge was shown the allotments as part of Little Haywood’s portfolio. He was particularly impressed with the wildlife area and made a comment on the judging report about it.
