The Yaxley Community 
Allotment will have a brand new poly tunnel to support 
its ongoing good work in the area thanks to a grant of £1,090.

Odette Pineger, from the community allotment, said: “We are absolutely thrilled with the news of receiving this award from Central England Co-operative.

“It will pay for a much needed poly tunnel for our community allotment; not only for growing seeds in early spring, but to shelter from the wind and rain that blows across the fens.”
