Calverton and Woodborough Allotment Association

Our trip to the Malvern Spring Show was a great success and everyone on it had a good time.  Thanks go to Malcolm for organising it with his usual care.  Our next trip is to the Malvern Autumn Show on Sunday 29th September.  The cost is £30 for non-members and £28 for members which includes transport and entrance to the show.  This show is very popular so if you are interested in going to the show please contact Malcolm early on 07814879720.

At this time of year there are always jobs to be done and it is very easy to get behind so this is probably a good time to remind members that the Allotment Association has a wide range of power tools rotovators, strimmers, flame guns etc. available for hire and these may well help to alleviate any problems.

These tools can be booked from the trading shed which is open every Sunday from 10.00 until 12.00am or by calling Malcolm (see the number above) and of course there is a wide range of gardening supplies always available from the trading shed at very reasonable prices.

You don’t have to have an allotment to be a member of the Allotment Association as we also have Associate Membership.  This allows you to take full advantage of the value for money prices at our trading shed and to the reduced rate on the trips that we run.  You will also be able to buy seeds at the reduced rate offered by the National Association.
