Morris dancers, beekeepers and conservationists gearing up for Goodmayes Allotment Garden Festival
Morris dancing, apple tasting and other traditional entertainment will be on offer at the Goodmayes Allotment Garden Festival on September 2.
The annual event, run by the Seven Kings and Goodmayes Allotment Society transforms the plot in Goodmayes Lane into a hive of activity.
Visitors can look around the allotment and buy produce and plants from stalls and fill up on home-made cakes.
The Eastbury Concert Band and Upside Morris Dancers will be performing and activities including corn grinding and cookery will be demonstrated.
Goodmayes Residents’ Association, Ilford Historical Society, Hopefield Animal Sanctuary and other groups will be at the event.
Fruit and vegetables are grown in the allotments and an area is reserved for wildlife with wild flowers and a pond.
The land has been used for horticulture since the Anglo-Saxon times and has been managed by local groups for more than 100 years.
