Allen’s Cross ‘Growing Neighbourhoods project 

We had a great turn out at the official opening event on 15th August .  Thankfully the weather stayed fine for us.  The children loved the balloon modeller and the face painter and everyone enjoyed the pizza cooked on our brand new earth oven.  Our next event will be a harvest festival on Sunday 27th September.
