Does anyone know of any areas in HOP or FH where sloe berries are growing?

You use them to make Sloe Gin and superb Homemade Wine among other things. They look a bit like blackcurrants but are about 2-3 times the size. I'm sorry I don't know where there are any local supplies.

I think there are some at the Perry Vale end of Perry Hill, but I'm not a 100% positive. I have a friend who is a great sloe gin brewer and will check with him.
