The Official Opening of the Trading Hut

In glorious spring sunshine, many people visited Stanley Road Allotment on Sunday, 15th March, to see the Mayor and Mayoress of Sutton officially open the allotment Society’s new trading hut.

Also, present were the Leader of the Council, Councillor Sean Brennan and Ward Councillors, Moira Butt and Tim Crowley.

The new building was completed with the help of a £10,000 National Lottery grant from Awards For All and was fitted out by the Society members.

The Mayor said that it was a great achievement for the Society to have secured the National Lottery Award last December, the only group in Sutton to have done so. He also paid tribute to the Society for completing the building in such a short time and he hoped that it will serve the allotment community for a long time to come.
