Chairman’s Mid-Season Update

August 2021
As I write this, we finally see the country getting back to a little more normality, it has been a difficult time for everybody but as previously mentioned the allotments have been a safe place for us all to enjoy.

Although life is a little easier, we felt that this year we would not look to have an outing, however, we very much hope that we can resume this activity in 2022.

The Committee do feel that we should try to celebrate the summer achievements this year and so we will once again be holding our summer BBQ with a vegetable competition to add a little bit of fun for those who wish to enter.

The Association Committee BBQ will be slightly earlier than normal this year and will be on Saturday 28th August.
We will gather to celebrate the summers achievements along with a very exciting Vegetable competition that will be judged during the afternoon.

The categories are as follows:

The BBQ and competition will be held at the Cemetery Fields sales hut where we will meet from 3.00pm, with food being served at 3.30pm.

However please arrive a little earlier if you are taking part in the competition to lay out your items.

One of the highlights of the BBQ are the wonderful cakes and desserts that are made for all to share and enjoy, and we would once again be grateful you are able to provide one.

To acknowledge your attendance please either email Dawn Conaty on the email address of or complete the On Line Form.
Please ensure that you note any dietary requirements you have and if you will be able to supply a pudding.

Please respond by Friday 20th August at the latest.

I do hope to see as many of our members as possible at what is always a lovely afternoon.

Sales Hut
The Opening of the hut for sales to members will continue through the month of August and the last Friday opening will be the 27th August 2021.

Could I please remind plot holders of the rules concerning Bonfires, these can only be lit for the purposes of burning allotment rubbish and not for the disposal of household waste; this includes the burning of plastic. Discretion must be used when lighting fires, giving consideration to other allotment holders and the surrounding community. After the fire is lit under no circumstances must it be left unattended.

Thank you for your continued support and I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at the BBQ on the 28th August.

Kind Regards

Chris Collins
