H&DAA Centenary Booklet published

 

The H&DAA Centenary booklet is now out! This has 80 pages and celebrates the 100 years of the Horfield & District Allotments Association which was reached in 2017.

In the book you can find answers to many questions including:

  • What is behind the field names of our allotment sites?
  • How did a wartime blackout lead to a new gate on Long’s Field?
  • How was a rubbish dump turned into an allotment?
  • What crops were grown in 1917 and how do they compare with today?
  • What wildlife is found on our allotments and what does sustainability mean?
  • What awards and prizes were won by the Association and its members?
  • How did 2 marrows lead to a prison sentence?
  • When was H&DAA the largest Allotment Association in Bristol?
  • What campaign initiatives did H&DAA champion?

We want every allotment plotholder to see this booklet. We are not planning on selling them, but you can get a copy of the booklet to read by contacting your Field Rep. Additional copies can be obtained by ringing Pete Clee on 07913953327
