Cream of the crop at allotment fundraiser
GREEN-FINGERED volunteers dug into cream teas as they toasted the success of a growing community project.
Around 30 people enjoyed yesterday's sunshine at the East End Community Allotments.
The project, now in its eight year, promotes sustainable fruit and vegetable growing among residents in the Prince Rock area.
Their latest fundraiser, which was attended by local councillors and Plymouth's Lord Mayor, Cllr Mike Wright, pocketed around £90.

Home-grown lettuces, onions, tomatoes, garlic and potatoes were up for sale, while there was also a raffle, and 'guess the weight of the cake' competition. Organiser Mo Townsend said the cash from regular cream tea events helped to keep the project alive. Three more are planned from 11am-1pm on June 27, July 16 and August 13, with everyone welcome.
The plot off Embankment Road already boasts a 30ft polytunnel, a picnic area, kitchen and the city's first 'green roofs'.
