More than 60 people enjoyed a tour of an award-winning project in North Lynn when they turned out for West Norfolk Mind’s Gardening for Health annual allotment open day.

Visitors and charity supporters took a stroll around the plot, off Front Way, enjoyed entertainment, games and refreshments, and took the opportunity to find out more about the allotment and support packages the charity has available.

Zena Penty, West Norfolk Mind’s volunteer co-ordinator, said: “Our Gardening for Health open day is always relaxing and fun, and was well attended again this year.”

Refreshments were provided by Lynn’s Hardwick Tesco store, and there were lots of homemade cakes on offer, with some even containing root vegetables.

Entertainment was provided by Tony Sturgeon and his friend David, Ebony Abraham and Josh Elms, and a total of £104 was raised on the day through a raffle and donations.

Ms Penty said the allotment was always in need of more volunteers, to help with things like watering and weeding. Contact her on 01485 572707. Pictured above, volunteers, supporters and entertainers pictured during the open day.
