Spuds if you like

DSC_0001Everyone who ordered seed potatoes from Terry has now collected them but there are still a few bags available.

The varieties on offer are: Duke of York first earlies; Kestrel second earlies; King Edward maincrop.

They are £2.20 per 2kg bag.

If you want to buy some, please speak to Terry (plot 18) or Ron (plot 22b).


Help yourself!


A huge pile of manure has been delivered to the allotment site and the good news is that it is completely free of charge.

Help yourselves!

Don’t forget your potatoes

There’s another chance for you to pick up your seed potatoes tomorrow. The site shop will be open from 10am to noon.

Anyone who has not yet collected the seed potatoes they ordered from Terry Johnson is urged to do so.

Full payment must be made on collection.


Water-harvesting scheme moves forward


Work has been continuing on the water-harvesting scheme with the laying of a feeder pipe to water barrels on individual plots.

This work involved trenching along one of the main allotment paths which has, inevitably, caused disruption and created a build-up of mud.

The association’s chairman, Tony Fursland, offers his apologies to plotholders  who have been inconvenienced and says the committee will be organising working parties as soon as possible to put things back to normal.

Don’t forget your spuds

If you ordered seed potatoes from Terry Johnson in the autumn now is the time to collect them.

They will be available for collection from the site shop in the large container on Saturday from 10am to noon.

You will need to pay for your order on collection. The potatoes, which are £1.10 per kg, come in 2kg bags.
