…but also to rejuvenate our allotments. I enjoy being out on my two allotments, plus finding inventive ways of dealing with the gluts of fruit & veg in my kitchen. I helped to set up Siddington Gardeners & Allotment Association. We even featured in Country Living Magazine for eight months in 2011 in a series called Grow & Cook. We all get together to organise the annual Siddington Grow & Show. There are also many talented artists, designers & makers on my doorstep. As the founder of Cotswold Open Studios, I enjoyed sharing these hidden treasures with the world in 2010, 2011 & 2013. I also run our village website where you can keep up-to-date with everything going on here.
