The success story of local allotments will be highlighted next week across East Antrim as part of National Allotments Week.

Allotments in Larne and Carrickfergus will be open to the public to view and several events will be taking place including practical workshops on site.

The allotments at Greenisland will be open between 6pm and 7.30pm on Monday, August 14, while those at Eden will be open to the public on Tuesday, August 15, between 6pm and 7.30pm. Activities are planned at both sites including a veggie BBQ and foraging as well as practical workshops.

Visitors will get the chance to view the allotments and learn more about them. Further information is available from parks@midandeastantrim.gov.uk or by telephoning 028 93358231.

The National Allotments Week is organised by the National Allotment Society, which was founded in the early 20th century.
