We love all of our customers, but sometimes we have special customers who have wonderful stories to tell. Mrs Crossley is like that. She was buzzing on about our Insect Theatres and about insects. She and her elderly sister spend hours on the marshes next to the allotments looking for something exciting. Last year they saw two wonderful Humming Bird Moths, right in front of them! It was such a joy as they have spent over 70 years looking and these were the first they have seen for themselves.
In retirement, she says time is nothing and they spend 12 hours a day at the allotments in summer. They have opened a market garden and sell loads of fresh fruit and vegetables from there. Their next objective is to link with a local school to pass on their wonderful knowledge to young children as they do not want to waste all this knowledge they have.
