Calverton and Woodborough Allotment Association

Our next trip is to the Malvern Autumn Show on Sunday 29th September.  The cost for members is £28 and for non-members £30 which includes transport and entrance to the show.  There are still a few spaces left on the coach so if you would like to go please contact Malcolm on 07814879720. 

Our AGM is on Tuesday 22nd  October, not the usual Thursday, at Calverton Village Hall in William Lee Memorial Park, Park Road, Calverton.  We have a speaker as usual and this year it is Ben Middleton who will be giving a talk on “Wildlife Gardening”.

 We will also be having our “Heaviest Pumpkin” competition on the night.  If you have an entry please bring it to the Village Hall at 6.00 pm for weighing.  This year the “President’s Cup” will be awarded for “the best use of allotment produce” if you have an entry please bring this at 6.00 pm as well for judging.  The AGM will start at 6.30pm.  Hopefully this will be brief and the talk will start at about 7.00 pm.

Members will soon be receiving their seed and potato catalogues and with these will be their allotment rent and membership renewal letters.  As in previous years, members of the committee will be available, in the Parish Council rooms, on the mornings of Tuesday and Thursday 1st  and 3rd  October to take both your allotment rent and Association subscriptions.
