If you ordered plants from Denis Vickers please contact Terry Johnson (plot18), Ron Barton (plot 22b) or Richard Anning (plot 46b) to arrange collection.
Denis Vickers, who is the judge at our allotment competitions every year, will be holding his usual charity plant sale this month but with a different format.
The Covid-19 restrictions mean that his sale, which raises money for the Air Ambulance, cannot be open to visitors this year,
Once you have decided what you want to buy, please email your choice to email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
They will co-ordinate the orders from plotholders, check availability, then collect the plants from Denis’s home in Woodnesborough, thereby minimising the number of journeys that have to be made.
They will then let you know how much money you owe for the plants and how to make payment.
Denis is planning to have the plants ready for collection from Friday, April 24.
Please get your orders in to Terry, Tony or Pearl by 6pm on Wednesday, April 22.
Plotholder Vanessa Blackman has kindly offered to water your greenhouse or polytunnel if you can’t get down to the allotments at the moment.
If you would like to take up her offer ring her on 07904 533082.
Because of the current situation the committee has decided not to switch on the mains water supply at the site.
Please use the water butts on your own plot rather than the communal water butts in order to minimise the risk of infection.
If you have to use taps on the allotment water butts please use gloves.
Please remember to use gloves when opening and closing the main gates.
In view of the current situation we would urge all plotholders to read this advice from the National Allotment Society in order to safeguard our members.
The toilet and shop on site are closed until further notice.
The men’s loo at the site is, unfortunately, broken and out of action. Repairs have already started and a new toilet will be installed but, in the meantime, all members can use the women’s loo.
The manure in the car parks is now free of charge. Just help yourself.
The first plot inspections of the year are due to take place in the coming week.
If you’re having problems working your plot because of illness or because you’re away, don’t forget to let the committee know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Everyone who ordered seed potatoes from Terry Johnson is urged to pick them up as soon as possible.
