Allotment Society News 2018

Newsletter - Spring 2018

Following a successful season we have entered a period of cold, wet weather and there is some frustration waiting for the ground to dry – which it will, as always. We are fortunate in our south-sloping, draining site.

We have been able to sit back and look at our catalogues from Sutton’s Seeds who give a significant discount on a Society order. Another advantage of membership is our ability to bulk purchase high quality composts and sell these to members at cost.

We ended the season with our annual Social Evening and Prize Giving and this year, invited Andy Starbuck, who doesn’t have to go to bed early any more, to make the presentations.
