Denis Vickers, who judges our annual allotment competitions, is holding a plant sale to raise money for the Air Ambulance.
A wide range of flower and vegetable plants will be on sale at the event at The Larch, Beacon Lane, Woodnesborough, CT13 0PB, on Saturday, April 27 from 10am to noon.
The committee is meeting next Monday. If there are any matters that you would like members to discuss please email the secretary at email@example.com
The clocks change on Sunday which means that the earliest time you can start a bonfire at the allotments will be 4pm.
But, in any case, Sunday will be your last chance for the time being to have a bonfire on site because the allotment rules say they are not allowed at all from April 1 to September 30.
As another sign of the changing seasons, the water will be switched on on Monday.
The first plot inspections of 2019 will also take place next week.
Cropwatch Horticulture of Dover is holding an open evening on Monday, April 1, from 6pm to 8pm, where you will be able to buy tools, equipment, fertiliser, pots, seed trays and a range of growing products.

Everyone who ordered seed potatoes from Terry has now collected them but there are still a few bags available.

If you want to buy some, please speak to Terry (plot 18) or Ron (plot 22b).
A huge pile of manure has been delivered to the allotment site and the good news is that it is completely free of charge.
