Thanks again to Mark who ran the London Marathon in support of Sprout. It was an amazing achievement of 4hrs 8mins in the hottest marathon recorded. The money raised makes a massive difference to support families.

Even the British weather didn’t dampen the spirits yesterday for POD at Almondbury Community Allotment.  It was great to see people cooking bread on the rocket stove and making fresh Houmous with wild garlic!  The BUD group enjoyed the company and got stuck in planting up the allotment borders and putting in Peas.

With help from the Volunteers we’ve been busy at our new growing site at Wakefield Road Allotments.  It’s an exciting space with lots of potential as we get ready from the growing season.

2/11/2017 Enjoying the Autumn sunshine with POD at Honley Community Centre

What a beautiful day to be outside! We had a great time at the Harvest Activities POD event.  The sun was shining, and our fun outdoor activities were accompanied by music from the ‘sing in t’valley’ group.

Everyone enjoyed the warming pumpkin soup and mulled juice, and our younger participants particularly loved making, cooking, and eating the apple and banana fritters.

Thanks to all those who came along and particularly our Young Mentors and Volunteers who supported the various activities.
