Calverton and Woodborough Allotment Association

The trip to the Malvern Autumn Show was again a great success.  We would like to thank Malcolm for his hard work in organising this and making it so good.

When you read this our AGM will have taken place and I will be announcing the winner of the President’s Cup and the heaviest pumpkin competition in the next issue of the Web.

Many members renewed their Association membership when they paid their allotment rent.  If you were unable to do this and would like to join/rejoin in order to take advantage of Association membership you can do this through any member of the committee, your site representative or at the trading shed which is open every Sunday morning.

Can I also remind everyone that we do have associate members who do not have an allotment but are able to use the trading shed which offers compost etc. at very competitive prices.

One of the advantages of being a member of the Association is cheaper seeds and seed potatoes.  Members will now have their seed and potato catalogues and the order forms to go with them.  Please make sure you put your orders in to Malcolm as soon as possible.  This will make sure you get your first choice of seeds and particularly potatoes for which popular varieties are often “out of stock” quite early on.
