The environmental 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.
The clocks change over the weekend and with that comes a change in the rules for bonfires.
From Sunday you will be able to start a bonfire from 3pm.
Please remember, though, to check for hedgehogs and other wildlife before you light any fire.
Chairman Tony Fursland is once again hosting a bonfire and fireworks on his allotment (plot 60) on Friday, November 2. The fun starts at 7pm.
All plotholders and their families are invited.
There are a number of pointed fencing stakes on offer at £1 each. They are 5ft in length and 3ins in diameter. If you’re interested call Dave Ward (plots 1B & 2 ) on 07725 888585.
A pile of manure has been delivered to both main car parks. The cost for plotholders is 75p per barrowload. Please make your payments to any committee member.
If you’re planning to order seed potatoes from Terry Johnson you need to get a move on. All orders must be with him by Tuesday.
The fees for next year will again remain at £25 for a full plot and £12.50 for a half plot.
You will also be able to place your orders from the Kings Seeds Catalogue (Kings Seeds) after the meeting. Please note, though, that if you are intending to pay both your plot fees and for seeds you will need to make separate payments. You won’t be able to pay for both using just one cheque.
October 1 is the first day on which bonfires can be lit on site and it is also the day when the mains water is turned off for the winter.
So, from Monday, you will be allowed to light a bonfire but only after 4pm. You must not leave it unattended. Please also avoid having a fire when the weather conditions could adversely affect our neighbours.
These 3 metal frames are on offer free of charge. You’ll find them by the shed on plot 14B. Please help yourself.
