Log on for allotment news
Published Thursday 14th February 13
A NEW Facebook page providing a whole host of information about allotments in Hartlepool has been launched.
The page, run by the Borough Council, is primarily aimed at allotment holders, but anyone else with an interest in gardening can visit and take a look.
Kate Ainger, The Council's Environmental Projects Officer, said: "We want to make it as easy as possible for people to obtain all the information they need to make the most of their allotments.
"We decided to launch this page on Facebook following the phenomenal success of a similar page highlighting the work of our Dog Warden Service which now has almost 2,000 followers.
"We intend to post all of our allotment news on there, as well as details of any courses, events and other initiatives that might be of interest to allotment gardeners.
"We are also inviting gardeners to post their own comments, photos and details of events that they would like to share, along with their top gardening tips and delicious recipes for using home-grown produce."
The Facebook page can be found at http://www.facebook.com/hartlepoolallotments A Facebook account is not needed to view the page, but people will need to open one if they wish to contribute to it.
Gardeners who are not Facebook users can still contact the Council's Allotments Team by telephoning (01429) 523406 or e-mailing email@example.com
