Owen Avenue

After taking on a derelict allotment site in Ormskirk in 2010, an enthusiastic group of new plotholders at Owens Avenue transformed the site.

Background

In 2010, a group of allotment enthusiasts in Ormskirk set about regenerating the disused allotment site at Owens Avenue.

Set-up

By August 2011, the enthusiastic group of new plotholders had transformed the site. All the six plots were up and running, a tool shed has been put up and the site has been further enhanced by a the arrival of ducks, chickens and quail to occupy a secure pen made by one of the plotholders.

Now

Many people have commented on the transformation including one committee member who said:  ‘It’s looking fab—like a dream come true..’
