Weston Under Wetherley Conservation group

Ansty Allotment Shed

The Ansty allotments are owned by the Ansty Sports and Social Club. All plot holders are members of the thriving club.  
The plots are located a short distance from the club building and have now buildings or sheds for storage of equipment or shelter.
The Association applied to Get Growing for a communal shed that would enable members to shelter and store communal equipment.

Willoughby New Allotments

In September 2013, the Willoughby Parish Council applied for a Get Growing Grant to create some new community allotments in the centre of the village.
With a waiting list of approximately 12 families, the council decided to acquire part of a grazing field to allotment plots. It hadn’t been cultivated for many years, so needed clearance.
A boundary of fencing and a gate was be installed with the Get Growing grant.

Broadwell Pig Club

Broadwell is a tiny village in rural Warwickshire.

For some time, a group of families had dreamt of starting a pig club.
Having visited the nearby pig clubs at Brinklow and Marton, they were enthused by what could  be achieved.
In June 2013, they heard about the Get Growing project and applied for start up resources and training.
The group delivered a flier to every house in the village and found 8 families interested in joining.
Once a suitable piece of land was found, the group got to work in preparing it for a fenced pen with two arcs.
