The onsite old shelter was converted a few years ago into a storeroom and tearoom by the allotment holders, as a place to escape from the bad weather and make a brew.

One of the longest holders of an allotment onsite was Gilbert Brightman. Until a broken hip forced him to give up his plot, Gilbert had served Layton Permanent Allotment Association in providing advice to other plot holders and as a hard working committee member.

Brightman’s Tea Room

In recognition of Gilberts’ work on behalf of the allotment Association, the committee agreed to name the tearoom after Gilbert.

Sunday 1st July 2012, Gilbert and his family, along with other plot holders were invited down to the allotment for afternoon tea and celebrate the naming of the tearoom… Brightman’s Tea Room.

 It is with deep regret that we have to report the passing of Gilbert Brightman, late in 2012.

He will be long remembered on the allotment.
