Polytunnel deal to benefit FCFCG members

News item first posted on: 27/11/17

A new partnership between FCFCG and Northern Polytunnels now means our members have access to an exclusive discount company's Easy-Build polytunnel range. The deal is part of FCFCG's ongoing work brokering discounts for its members and part of Northern Polytunnels commitment to support community growers and agricultural projects. 

Established in 1969, Northern Polytunnels is one of the largest polytunnel manufacturers in the UK, predominantly supplying the commercial horticultural industry. They are doing their bit to support community growing by providing a 10% discount on their Easy-Build range for FCFCG members. The discount will give community projects up and down the country the opportunity to achieve more, work better and become more sustainable.

If you are a community garden, city farm or similar community-managed green space project, then you can take advantage of this offer and other benefits by becoming a member of FCFCG. And even better news - it's free to join!

Danielle Palfreeman, NP's Marketing Manager, says: “Working FCFCG has been such a privilege. We started our business in 1969 with the idea that everyone should have access to sustainable farming all year round. Gardening is a fantastic way to bring local communities together, giving people purpose, helping to stock cupboards and in some projects we have worked with, filling local food banks.”

And Chris Blythe, Director of FCFCG said: We're really pleased to be working with Northern Polytunnels. Grant funding doesn't always cover the costs of structures like these, so this is a great deal for our members."
