Visitors will get the chance to view the allotments and learn more about them. Further information is available from parks@midandeastantrim.gov.uk or by telephoning 028 93358231.

The National Allotments Week is organised by the National Allotment Society, which was founded in the early 20th century. This year the theme of the event is ‘Growing the Movement’ and it aims to celebrate hard work involved in managing sites.
