Any members of the local community who would like to have their say on plans for the creation of allotments within the college’s grounds are invited to a meeting at The Maltings college on Wednesday 1 February at 8pm.

A group of keen gardeners within Fountain Head village, the ‘Fountain Head Allotment and Leisure Gardeners,’ are working with a teacher at the college, Amanda Rosewell, to take forward the new community venture.

The meeting is an opportunity for people to have a say on how the scheme will be run and a chance to meet the Maltings College team.

Principal Nicki Clarke said: “We already have strong links with the local business community as part of our work placements, but these allotments will strengthen our community links and our position as a college in the heart of Fountain Head Village.

“Anyone who may be interested in having their say is encouraged to come along to find out more on 1 February.”
