On Friday 4th March, Kwasi visited the Shepperton Allotments in Grove Road to meet with members of the Shepperton Allotment Association.
The Allotments have provided a valuable community asset for 150 years, and still enjoy an extensive waiting list. Recent funding from the National Lottery Community Fund has been used to build further facilities on the allotment site, including a community shed that provides storage and meeting space. Last year, the National Lottery Community Fund awarded £11,600 to community projects here in Spelthorne.
Despite the dismal weather, Kwasi thoroughly enjoyed visiting the allotments and congratulating both the Allotment Association and the National Lottery Community Fund on the fantastic community work they continue to do.
