Plot Bingo

As you gently wander around our Plots, you may catch sight of some pretty odd looking things.53

Well, odder than you’d normally expect to see, that is.

Painted in bright colours on the tops of tree stumps, you’ll see them dotted all over the site, and here are just a few of them I managed to find and snap the other day.

73So just what are they?

Well, Dear Reader, these have been created by one of our most talented artists, Ian and they are in fact the official numbers of the Plots they are each sat on.

NOT, as some have suggested, the leftovers from a truly huge game of Bingo!

Each one is different from the others, each with its own vivid colours and style.

We think they’re quite beautiful, and certainly add to the colour and vibrancy of the whole site.74

So, if you’re after a number plate for your house that’s totally unique, then ask him very nicely, and you never know, he may just paint one for you.

Last Saturday we had a lovely creative day at LEAF. I arrived late in the day as usual, and to my delight Jo had organised a fantastic painting activity for the children, and I was very impressed with the larger-than-life self portraits they had painted.

Jo and Matt were busy constructing a shed out of cardboard, and were constantly interrupted by children trying to climb in and out of the shed whilst it was still under construction! You just can’t beat a cardboard box!

I got stuck in and started to make some large cardboard garden forks and spades –  all of these things are going to be part of LEAF’s creative contribution to Allotment Soup at Rivelin allotments this weekend. We will also be taking some of our fantastic scarecrows so hope to see you there!
