Teams from Transition Dover and the Prospect Place Community Allotment got together to host the annual Allotment Open Afternoon and share how good it can be to “grow your own” fruit and vegetables for healthy exercise and better eating. The Allotment Team are very proud of the new wildlife pond which they created this year on the plot. Prospect Place is one of 5 Town Council allotment sites and the Council is right behind them with support.

Transition Dover have been working very successfully since 2015 to support and encourage a stronger and happier neighbourhood with small scale community responses to the challenges of climate change and economic hardship by bringing people together to make friends, have fun and feel proud of Dover. They are now actively looking for more members to join their group – e-mail transitiondover@yahoo.co.uk or check out their Facebook page.

On September 17th, the team will be supporting the White Cliffs Countryside Partnership in the Annual Beach Clean of Shakespeare Beach. All litter collected will be logged as part of the Marine Stewardship Council’s national beach clean-up. Meet at Lord Warden Square at 10am (collect a parking permit from the leader on the day) – tea, coffee and biscuits provided! – finish about 12.30. More information is available from WCCP on 01304 241806.
