What’s on at St Anns Allotments

 

There’s a lot for allotment holders to get involved in over the coming weeks…

 

You may have seen posters around site and lots of activity on Facebook leading up to our Wildlife Weekend, which is kicking off this evening with a bat walk. The bat walk is fully booked, but take a look at what’s on over the weekend, there are plenty of activities to join in with! You don’t have to be a plot holder to come along, so feel free to spread the word!

There are four categories to choose from, judging will take place during National Allotment Week and prizes will be presented at our Harvest Celebration event in September.

Bring Famous Photographer Rankin to St Anns Allotments!

Cast your vote to ‘win’ world famous photographer Rankin for Nottingham – the man behind portraits of the Queen, Kate Moss and Dove’s ‘Real Women’ campaign.

Rankin 4 Notts

This is an exciting opportunity to bring Rankin to our allotments! If Nottingham wins, he’ll photograph plot holders, volunteers and local people at the allotments. The photographs will then be displayed at a special evening event at the allotments. But it won’t happen without votes!

As many votes as possible are needed to ‘win’ Rankin for Nottingham in a national competition called Connect10. The city is up against fierce competition from Bath, Brighton and Kent.

Voting opens on 14 January and closes on 28 January. You can cast your vote online at:

www.culture24.org.uk/places-to-go/museums-at-night/art462295-Connect10-Vote-Rankin

If you don’t have access to the internet or an email address you can register your vote by calling The Renewal Trust on 0115 911 2011.

To learn more about Rankin and see some of his photos, take a look at his website.

Help spread the word on Twitter by submitting your own photos of Nottingham using the hashtag #Rankin4Notts and following @Rankin4Notts.

Let’s put St Anns Allotments on the map!
