In the last 6 months we have had over 6 new plot-holders. They are actively tending their plots, which has led to a marked improvement in the appearance of the site.
Well done to everyone.
We now only have one and a quarter vacant plots available. Hopefully we will encourage some more budding gardeners in the next few months.
We have been advised that the cutting of grass has been delayed due to the lack of lawnmowers. This will hopefully be rectified by the end of July. So if you can help to keep the walkways clear it would be appreciated by all.
We are planning a Meet and Greet BYO on the 6th July for all old and new plot-holders to meet each other and the committee. Let us know if you can attend by emailing the secretary.
The more the merrier.
Due to the Donkeys now being out in the fields the supply of straw has died down. We do however expect to continue with the deliveries of wood chippings but do not have a guaranteed regular delivery.
So grab it while its there!
In future there will be standard dates for turning off and on the water supply. These will be the first week of November and the first week of March. As before, this will depend on weather conditions.
