LOOKING AFTER OUR WORLD - Poetry Competition to celebrate Ledbury Poetry Festival

To celebrate Ledbury Poetry Festival 2022, Pot & Page is teaming up with Sustainable Ledbury to spark young imaginations with our under 18s poetry competition - Looking After Our World !  The competition is open to anyone between the ages of 4-18, with each age group pooled into school year groups, and a winning entry and runner up chosen from each.   The closing date is Friday 10th June, and the prize giving will take place at the  Kids’ Poetry Fayre  in the Pot & Page secret garden on Saturday 2nd July (2-5PM)  JUDGES   We are very lucky to have a fantastic panel of judges joining us this year: Sara Jane-Arbury : A writer, performer and workshop facilitator who has created writing and produced live literature since 1993, collaborating with organisations including Arts Council England, BBC, Oxford University Press, The Poetry Society and Bloodaxe Books . Sara-Jane was Voices Off Director at Cheltenham Literature Festival for eleven years and has undertaken many residencies


The Pot & Page seed library is now up and running! This project was a collaboration between the team at Pot & Page & Sustainable Ledbury, who together have decided to enable the local community have easy access to growing their own - whether that be in a small window box, or a large garden. * PLANT - GROW - DONATE * How it works - All seeds from the library are FREE to take home! - Take a whole packet, or tip the amount you need into the envelopes provided (don't forget to note down the growing instructions). - If you take more than you need, please return any unused seeds (in the original packaging) back to the seed library, so the cycle can continue.  - To donate seeds, please bring them into Pot & Page. It's not a problem if they're past their 'sow-by-date' - most seeds, (other than parsnips) will sprout past this date, but may just have a slightly lower success rate.  - There are a range of plants available - including fruit and vegetables.
