Blackpool Civic Trust held a Scarecrow festival between 30th June 2012 and 1st July 2012. The event was held in Salisbury Woodland adjacent to Blackpool Zoo.

Jacky Stennett entered a scarecrow on behalf of Layton Permanent Allotment Association and won 1st prize in the Allotments section.

We understand that the festival will be held again in 2013 and Layton Permanent Allotment Association hope to repeat their success.

Layton Permanent Allotment Association in the Community

Layton Primary School Fete was held on Saturday 30th June 2012. Layton Permanent Allotment Association once again loaned their marquees to the school.

We were also asked to run a stall at the event selling fresh produce and plants grown on the allotment and donated by the plot holders.

One of the plot holders, Mica, who has a child at the school, was the point of contact and assisted Jacky Stennett run the stall.

The stall raised £58.55 towards Association running costs and an additional amount towards the school funds.

The two Gala marquees owned by Layton Permanent Allotment Association have proved to be very popular in the local community and have been loaned out to other groups in the Layton area.

Layton Primary School fete, Friends of Kingscote Park and the St Marks annual garden party have all made use of the marquees.

The Gala marquees were purchased in 2009 by the Layton Permanent Allotment Association using a Grassroots Grant applied for by Jacky Stennett.

Our local councillors have always been very supportive of the allotment.

Following a contribution by the councillors in 2011, 250 native mixed wildlife hedging plants were planted around the perimeter of the site (fenced side of the dyke and behind plots 9,10 & 16) .

The one year old bare root plants, planted in February 2012 are showing good signs of growth. Photographs of these will be placed here later this year to show how they are developing and their contribution to the wildlife they attract.
