The WTBL plot at Church Lane Allotments in Wormley is a shared community space where people can come together to grow and spend time outdoors. It is perfect for those without their own place to plant vegetables or who don’t want the responsibility of managing an allotment single handed.
Potatoes, courgettes, peas, beans, tomatoes, spinach, carrots, rhubarb and many other crops have all been grown successfully with plenty to share among those who’ve participated. A large cage has also been installed for raspberries, blackcurrants, gooseberries and other fruit.
It’s for people of any age, experience or ability to get involved and work together in a friendly, supportive way sharing their knowledge and ideas.
In the near future it is hoped to build a shed and create some raised beds in order to try different methods of gardening. If you’re interested, contact WTBL.

* Please note that unfortunately our walks are not appropriate for dogs or pushchairs
Social Sewing Bee
When restrictions are lifted, the Social Sewing Bee meets on Thursdays from 1pm until 4pm.
It is a social group as opposed to a class or workshop, so perfect for bringing along your existing projects and sharing tips with others.
There are a handful of sewing machines available to use, along with a wealth of knowledge and expertise!
Our new Buggy Walk group meets at the Hub on Monday’s at 10am. A group of local parents get together with their little ones in tow, to get those all important steps up, take in some fresh air and clear their heads. It’s a great opportunity to reset health, both physical and mental and a chance to meet new people in the community.
This walk is very relaxed and easy going, with breaks whenever needed for those inevitable feeds, changes and snack stops! Buggies are not a necessity, older children are more than welcome but unfortunately no dogs on this walk.
