Calverton and Woodborough Allotment Association

Having looked at a variety of possible trips this year the Malvern Spring and Autumn shows seem to offer the best value for money with other venues being considerably more expensive.  Details of the final decision will appear in a future report as and when we have finalised the details.

 You will be needing various garden sundries in the coming weeks as you sow seeds and prepare for the new season.  The trading shed is fully stocked at present with new season compost including grow-bags, potting, multi-purpose and peat free as well as various types of fertiliser.  It also carries a range of canes and netting to support and protect your produce.  Many prices are the same as last year with some being lower so get in early while stocks last and avoid disappointment.

Finally can I once again encourage anyone who would like to try their hand at managing an allotment to contact the Parish Clerk as there are still some sites available.

Woodborough Committee

A huge thank you to all those who not only supported our very successful Christmas Fair but also to those who faithfully knitted items to be sold at various garages, shops and garden centres. The total for all our Christmas fundraising including selling jigsaws at Burton Joyce December market came to £3406.80, an amazing amount but which reflects the enormous amount of work carried out for this outcome. Thank you again, all of you.

We are looking forward to this year’s events which begin with our Big Breakfast. This is followed by our annual Ladies Lunch, Race for Life Schools and a Murder Mystery evening. Look out for posters and in The Woodborough Web for further bulletins. We really do appreciate the support of so many friends in our village and in the wider community.
