Knucklas Castle is holding an iron age themed event on 19th August.
The main attraction will be John Kenny and his carnyx. The carnyx is an iron age horn that he has reconstructed and plays – see his web site carnyx.org.uk He will be playing on the Friday evening in the Presteigne Assembly rooms and tickets will be available via the Festival box office.
There will also be Simon King on jazz guitar and other musicians and singers.
On the day there will be many other activities on the field – food stalls, folk music, kids games etc.
Of course we will need many volunteers to assist on the day, and also to help in the preparation and organisation. If you would like to help please contact us via the “Contact us” page or phone 01547 520263
The family allotment will be available again from SAT 1st APRIL 2017 for children and parents to use throughout the summer and autumn of 2017.
There are tyres, blue boxes and buckets available for you to plant potatoes, onions, peas, carrots, lettuce and much more.
The Family Allotment shed has hand trowels & forks plus buckets, kneelers, gloves and all the equipment you need to do a bit of growing in a small space.
There is also a greenhouse to start seedlings such as sweet corn, runner beans, sunflowers or whatever you choose to plant out on your plots later in the season. There will be some seeds available for you to use too and instructions as to what to plant and when if you should need it.
Siggy Haynes and Jacky Smith are available to help you get started – if you give us enough notice. If parents wish to meet us up at the allotments with their children please ring Siggy on 528223
The Family Allotment is free to all users but a donation to costs would be welcome. It is funded in the main by the sale of the Knucklas Allotments Eggs and any surplus vegetables.
ALL WE ASK IS:
• You keep the shed tidy and respect other people’s plots
• Make sure there is always a responsible adult with your children
• Observe the rules which are pinned on the door of the Family Allotment shed
Many thanks and Happy Gardening
