The Gateway Community Allotments are officially open.

That was a huge pleasure – I was asked to cut the ribbon and open the wonderful garden and oasis and allotment at Woodhatch Road, Reigate.

This partnership between Reigate and Banstead Borough Council who provided the land, and The Surrey Care Trust in creating the community allotment project is very special.It is to provide space for nurturing and mentoring 100 vulnerable people and families per year,based on social and therapeutic horticulture.

So much community ,with local businesses and local people helping and providing to make this an amazing and important space. Well done and thank you to Surrey Care Trust and all the volunteers.
