Fire and Feast at Lewes Community Allotment

4 November 2015·

What a lovely gathering the Fire and Feast was! It was the day before the huge Bonfire event takes place in Lewes, but even so, it was a bit of a shock to see a 50ft Guy Fawkes being made on top of a huge bonfire just outside where our allotment is on the Downs by the Nevill estate.

It was a damp blustery morning, but we got the fire going and made it cosy. We even had an unexpected visitor - a grey cat - who was very friendly and inquisitive.

We all enjoyed trying the many different tasters - pumpkin scones and muffins, veggie soup made from squash grown on our allotment, frittata, chutney, homemade bread and jam... all washed down with tea. And the company couldn't have been better.
