The Mansfield Paves the Way with Little Roots
Little Roots Children’s Community Allotment have received an award of £200 from our Community Support Scheme towards the cost of paving slabs for their allotment in Mansfield Woodhouse. The allotment is regularly visited by local primary schools and groups from the Children’s Centre and they offer their ‘home grown’ produce to local families.
Anita Dean, Secretary/Trustee of Little Roots said: “We are grateful to The Mansfield for helping with this particular project. The paving slabs will improve the access to our recently acquired additional plot. Our aim is to involve older children from the local secondary school and college to grow produce on a larger scale”
The Mansfield’s Marketing Co-ordinator, Mandy Whitten said “We are very pleased to be able to help a charity that encourages local children to get involved in growing their own produce locally and promoting a healthier lifestyle.”
