November Work Party

 

Thanks to the ten plus volunteers who turned up over three days to clear years of accumulated rubbish and overgrown vegetation from one of our plots, prior to its re-letting. A tremendous amount of work was achieved in order to make the site presentable to new tenants.

The photographs show some of the work in progress. Thanks to Chris Chalmers for the first two photographs.

Congratulations

Louise and  Andrew Lees were awarded a top award for the second year running in the Kent Wildlife Trust Wild about Gardens Award Scheme. Their plot was selected as the best in plots for its good mix of vegetables and fruit for consumption and thoughtful planting of a variety of plants to attract pollinators and a range of other wildlife.

PLANT SWOP

This year’s plant swap will take place between 1000 hrs and 1300 hrs on Sunday 12th May in the main entrance area of the Allotments.

If you have a plethora or paucity of seedlings, or any plants, now is the time to SWOP and meet fellow allotment holders, too. We would appreciate any help on the day.

If the weather is dire we will postpone for a week or so.
