It may feel as if it’s only five minutes since you dug up this year’s potatoes but it’s already time to start thinking about next year’s crop.
The Association is, once again, offering a range of seed potatoes at the bargain price of just £1.10 per kg.
There will be nine varieties on offer.
First Earlies: Pentland Javelin, Casablanca, Duke of York white
Second Earlies: Charlotte, Marfona, Kestrel
Maincrop: Sarpo Mira, Cara, King Edward
They come in 2kg bags.
If you want to buy some, please place your order with Terry Johnson ( plot 18) by October 16.
Payment will be due when you receive your seed potatoes.
Because the Association is offering these bargain-priced seed potatoes we will not accept any orders for seed potatoes through the Kings Seeds Catalogues.
Any other orders from the Kings Seeds Catalogue must be placed by November 1. Please pass your order to Pearl or Ron Barton (plots 21b and 22b ) with full payment, either by cheque or in cash.
The annual general meeting of the Deal & Walmer Allotment Holders Association will be held on Monday October 15 at The Royal Marines Social Club, The Strand, Deal. Please arrive in good time for a 7.30pm start.
The agenda for the meeting and the minutes of the 2017 AGM can be found below.
The next committee meeting is on Monday September 10. If there is anything that you would like members to discuss please email the chairman at firstname.lastname@example.org
The next plot inspections will take place in the first week of September.
Summer may be drawing to a close but it’s never too late for a barbecue!
Join us by the large container on Sunday, September 9 from 1pm. All plotholders are welcome with their family and friends.
We will be holding a raffle so prize donations would be greatly appreciated. Bring them along on the day or give them to committee members in advance.
Any profits will go into association funds.
