Victoria Jubliee Allotments

Great news too see that the VJA  were finally opened last Saturday with lots of members of the public turning up to stake their claim. The VJA are right next to Handsworth Park and part of Birmingham City Councils allotments. I am amazed at just how popular allotments are in Handsworth and how hard local residents have fought to get these allotments.

Well done to you all! I hope you now enjoy lots of fun growing stuff on your allotments. I am looking forward to a visit in the next week to get some photos.

See some photos of the day and read more about the campaigners long fight to get the allotments at Democracy Street
