Welcome to new allotment holders Gordon & Catherine Sinkinson, Pat Norman, Judy Howard, Amelia Sayce, Alastair & Fiona Reay, Katie Owen, Candida Grant, Tom & Sarah Cowling, and Hermione Whitehouse who took ownership of their plots this morning as well as Synetta & Mike Howes who extended their existing plot.
With good weather forecast for the next week or so, it will be great to see the new allotment holders actively prepare their new plots for a variety of crops. A little competitive spirit amongst the new allotment holders present today may well encourage a bounty of entries into the village fruit and veg competitions later this year.
Many thanks to Gilbert Hobbs for preparing the land.
As you can see from the photo, there is still plenty of land available for new allotments, and with fees at only £5 per year, this is a great and inexpensive way to start growing your own fruit and vegetables. There are two prepared plots available immediately, so please contact Steve Thompson for more information.
