The clocks change to British Summer Time tonight which means that the earliest time you can start a bonfire at the allotments will be 4pm.
But if you’ve got anything you want to burn you’d better get on with it as the allotment rules say bonfires are not allowed at all from April 1 to September 30.
The environment group, Deal With It, is holding one of its regular Seedy Saturday seed and plant swaps on Saturday at the Landmark Centre. Full details here.
You may have noticed hop plants growing on a number of allotments on the site last year as part of the Deal Hop Farm community project.
If you are interested in joining the project this year or simply want to find out more about it, follow the link below for news of the 2018 launch meeting and a number of information sessions.
If you haven’t been able to pick up your seed potatoes yet there will be a few more chances in the coming week.
They will be available for collection at the large container by the barbecue area on Wednesday (January 17) from 10am to noon, on Saturday (January 20) from 10am to 2pm and on Sunday (January 21) from 10am to 2pm.
Please bring full payment with you if you have not already paid for them.
The seed potatoes ordered from Terry Johnson are now ready for collection.
They will be available at the big container next to the barbecue area on Friday from 2pm to 4pm and on Saturday morning from 9.30am.
If you have not already paid for them please bring full payment with you.
The association’s rammer, which went missing a few months ago (Gone awol ), has now turned up again.

A load of well-rotted manure has been delivered to both main car parks on the allotment site.
The price for plotholders is £!5 for 20 barrowloads or 75p per barrowload. Please make your payment to any committee member.
You need to hurry if you want to order goods from the Kings Seed Catalogue and earn yourself a discount. Tomorrow is the last day for orders to be accepted.
If you haven’t already done so please hand your order to Pearl Barton, plot 21b or 22b, or to Tony Fursland, plot 60 (Allotment plot map).
The committee is not intending to raise the fees for the coming year so they look set to remain at £25 for a full plot and £12.50 for a half plot.
You can also place your Kings Seed Catalogue (Planning For Next Year) order at the meeting.
