KEEN gardeners have been capturing life on allotments across Clevedon to make into a special film.Members of Clevedon Town Council allotments committee along with green-fingered gardeners in the town have been capturing video clips of what goes on at the perches with a view to making it into a DVD.Councillor Carole Wring started to collect video clips on the allotments last autumn, zooming in on the types of plants and vegetables people had worked hard all year round to cultivate.Further filming is taking place this Spring and there are plans to include footage from the flower show in the summer, which many of the gardeners enter.The final film will be edited by a member of the allotments committee and shown at the group's tenants meeting in September.Councillor Wring said: "So many interesting things go on at the allotments and we wanted to capture the hard work the tenants put into their plots."We thought it would be fantastic to make a film of life at our allotment gardens throughout the year with the finale being the annual flower show."So far we have captured on film the many different gardening techniques people use and even the weather gardeners have had to contend with."It is also possible we will interview various allotment holders for the film."Cllr Wring said anyone who wanted to take footage of the allotments was welcome to submit clips for inclusion in the film.She added: "We want to get a full picture of life on the allotments."We also plan to include music on the DVD with songs including 'An English Country Garden' being a feature track."This is the first time a film has been made about our allotments and I am sure many people will look forward to seeing it later in the year.
