The skerries allotments, community area got its baptism of fire with the Pig BBQ, which was a great success. The weather turned a little damp in the evening, but that didn’t deter many allotmenteers and their families from coming along for the community event.

The weather was chilly enough for August, but the fire kept everyone warm.

The crowd began to assemble in the afternoon, with everyone bringing along some of their own produce from their own gardens and allotments. Dee and Zee brought some of their very nice mulled elderflower wine.

The conversation was lively and the food fantastic.

The craic went on into the night as many allotmenteers found the boy scout and the girl guide within them. A great way to end the evening, discussing the serious issues around organic composting and weed control. The allotment community area was shown to be a great asset for the allotments. Skerries allotment association will be working with Fingal Co Co in the coming months to develop the community area further.

Many thanks to Deirdre J. for the great photos.
