In January, the BBC’s CBeebies team filmed part of an episode of their popular children’s TV series ‘Down On the Farm’ at the site of Colin Neighbourhood Partnership’s allotments on the outskirts of Poleglass.

 The Colin Allotments and Healthy Living Centre will appear in an episode where school children from Belfast harvest beetroot from the plots and pickle veggies in the allotment kitchen under the expert eye of Colin Allotment holder and keen pickler, Ann McCarron.


Marketing Officer at Colin Neighbourhood Partnership and Colin Allotments, Emma Toner, said: “We were very excited that the ‘Down On the Farm’ producers chose the Colin Allotment site in Poleglass to feature in one of their episodes.  It’s a great opportunity for people to see this hidden gem of the Colin area and to showcase all the different activities that take place at the Colin Allotments.”
