AN allotment will play host to a series of arts and crafts workshops this summer.

Jack Drum Arts has organised a host of activities for children, young people and families at its allotment in Roddymoor, near Crook.

Talented artists will demonstrate how to create wind chimes, sculptures and more out of everyday recyclable materials. Jack Drum also hopes to create a greenhouse out of large plastic bottles and anyone who would like to get involved is very welcome.
