SPECIAL allotments set up in Huddersfield to allow disabled people to garden with ease will be opened on Saturday.
They have been created off Branch Street in Paddock by the Paddock Pathways To Health group.
This is one of three healthy living groups set up in Huddersfield with money from the Big Lottery Fund.
The allotments are easy to reach by car and have paths suitable for wheelchair users.
There are also raised growing beds, so that wheelchair users can easily do their gardening.
People with physical and mental disabilities from the nearby day care centre at Paddock Village Hall will be among the first to use the allotments.
But the plots are available to any disabled member of the public in the Paddock area, as long as they arrange it with Paddock Pathways To Health.
Work started on the allotments last July and they were completed in August.
But by then growing seasons had ended and the official opening was postponed.
Saturday's opening ceremony will be carried out by Kirklees Mayor Clr Margaret Fearnley.
Also present will be staff from the Big Lottery Fund.
There will be children's entertainment, food, stalls and gardening advice. The event will run from 11am to 2pm.
Javid Hussain, the food and allotments development officer for Paddock Pathways To Health, designed the preliminary plans for the allotments and co-ordinated the work.
He said: "They are some of the most accessible allotments in Huddersfield, with good equipment, an on-site disabled toilet and a training room.
"The first people to use them will be people from the day care centre.
"They are really excited about getting out there.
"The allotments are particularly good for them because they are nearby.
"The Government is keen on getting people out of day care centres to become more independent and healthy and enjoy the outdoors."
