Calverton and Woodborough Allotment Association

This year’s trip to the Malvern Spring Show is proving very popular.  There are still a few spaces available for the trip.  This is on Sunday 12th May and costs £28 for members and £30 for non-members which includes transport and entry to the show.  If you would like to book a place please contact Malcolm on 07814879720.

In preparation for the coming year the trading shed is fully stocked with canes, compost and all the requirements you need to manage your allotment.  There are also a range of power tools available for hire to make the preparation of your allotment site less demanding.  The trading shed is open every Sunday and if this is not convenient for you, contact Malcolm on the number above to make an alternative arrangement.

Finally there are a few vacant allotment sites so if you are interested in “growing your own” on an allotment please contact the Parish Clerk on 0115 9654560.  Can I also remind everyone that we do have a disabled allotment available for hire in part or as a whole so if you are an individual or represent a disabled group that would be interested in taking up allotment gardening please contact me on the number below for further details.
