Seven Kings and Goodmayes Allotment Society refit container into new trading hut
PUBLISHED: 09:58 17 September 2020
Allotment holders in Goodmayes will be buying their onion sets, seed potatoes, compost and fertiliser from the back of a lorry in future.
This is because their new trading hut is a 30ft container that once travelled the motorways of Britain - but has now been refitted by volunteers.
The container now houses an office, shop and serving area, while a sheltered area outside provides space for members of the Seven Kings and Goodmayes Allotment Society to have a cuppa and a chat.
