Spring Clean – Sunday 14 April

As part of the Community Spruce programme we are hosting a Great British Spring Clean to help tidy up our allotments, and the areas near our entrances.

As well as a general tidy up and litter pick, we will be giving the clubhouse, toilets and office a good clean and a lick of paint.  We will be pricking-out and potting-on of plants for the Open Day on 19th May.  Our resident horticultural expert will be giving demonstrations for those new to growing from seed.

Children can help too – many of the seedlings ready to be pricked-out were sown by children at our March Community Spruce event.

Members will be able to dispose of non-recyclable waste in a skip that will be available on the day.

We look forward to seeing you on Sunday!

 

New plots created!

Have you seen the new plots that have been created? The Committee had a digger in last week to create new plots where the Christmas trees used to be, by the chicken run and also along the river bank (see picture).

It doesn’t look much now, but the soil is good and I’m sure they’ll be full of colour and produce in the summer!
