It’s party time on Saturday 7 May from 1pm until late as we gather together to celebrate chairman Tony’s birthday!

Everyone is welcome, all plot holders, friends and family and there’ll be the traditional BBQ too! BYO and see you there x

Any ‘ol iron?

Do you have any scrap metal on your plot that you need to get rid of? We’re going to collect it all together and then hopefully sell it to raise funds for the allotment kitty. Please can anyone who has any scrap metal they would like us to dispose of bring it to the collection point outside the gents’ toilets. If you have items that are too bulky for you to carry please let Anna know and we will try to get them collected directly from your plot. Do drop Anna and email on

Mary Tester

The funeral of long-standing plotholder Mary Tester is due to take place at Barham on Wednesday, December 29 at 2pm, followed by a wake at Betteshanger Bowling Club, Cavell Square.

Mary’s partner, John Chidwick, says anyone who knew her will be welcome at either event.

The hearse will drive past the allotments at about 1.15pm if anyone would like to pay their respects there.

A Gentle Reminder

Please don’t forget to pay your plot rental if you haven’t already done so.

The current rate is £30 for a full plot and £15 for a half plot.

The rent was due on November 1 and if it’s not paid by the end of the month there is a penalty of £10 on top of the annual fee.
