Firstly, thanks to Shropshire Council for their help and advice in setting up this project and funding, without which this project would have never got off the ground! In particular, our sincere gratitude go to Ruth Mansfield and Gwyn Bevan, our former and current Community Officers.
Thank you also to Shrewsbury Town Council for the additional grant for further development of the site to improve community participation.
Next, our thanks go to all of our volunteers that have generously given up their free time to help us get to where we are now. There are too many of you to mention, but you know who you are!
Our thanks also go to:
The Berwick Estate (the Angell-James family) for providing the land for the allotment site;
Balfours (especially Michael Watney), as the land agent for the site;
Andy Bannister of Cadmonkey Designs, who has generously donated his time putting together figures and drawings for our site and various projects;
Jancis Vaughan and Richard Davies, who kindly donated our communal shed;
Martin Howard, our main site contractor;
Severn Trent Services, who provided soil analysis for the project;
Transition Town Shrewsbury, members of which helped to get the project started (Katy Anderson and Claire Kirby in particular); and
The National Society of Allotment & Leisure Gardeners Limited (CCAA are a member).
In addition, the following individuals have been photographing the site and volunteers as the project has progressed. We thoroughly recommend you visit their pages (including Andrew’s excellent blog on our site):
