Successful September Open Day

Our open day on 3 September was a great success – we saw some new faces, and those visiting were clearly enjoying the warm weather and good company. The Pymm’s went down well with some of our visitors, and we all had a go at splatting that mole – with about as much success as in real life!

Current talking points - regular working party dates: water payments

To help with site maintenance a regular working party will take place on the second Sunday of each month during the season, starting on September 9 with another on October 14, then starting again in March. The sessions will be from 10 – 12 and we welcome all allotment holders to join us and help keep the site tidy. Please bring equipment and enthusiasm for a structured programme of activities.

It was agreed at the AGM that an interim payment for water would be collected in September. As the weather has been so wet and we are awaiting a water bill, it has been decided to defer the collection of payments until we have a clearer idea of the actual cost.

Some areas of the allotments have become overgrown. It is the individual responsibility of allotment holders to maintain their plot – please contact the Committee if you are experiencing a problem keeping on top of your area.

The door hinges on the container have rotted. Various options have been considered, but nothing has resolved the problem. If you could help, please contact a Committee member.

 

 

 Availability of Plots

The delay in the development of new plots has occurred due to the need to plough the area prior to fencing and dividing the spaces. The new plots may now be delayed by some time, although suggestions and support in ploughing and fencing the area is welcome.

Note that the policy is that only residents of Weston & Basford are eligible.

 Polytunnel

Please make sure you protect the top of canes in the tunnel, to ensure there is no damage to the polytunnel.

 There is helpful advice here: All about polytunnels

 

 

 Fight against Blight!

See Potato Blight advice sheet for allotment growers

Security

Please keep the gate closed at all times. Remember that dogs should be under control at all times, preferably on a lead. Under no circumstances should you allow your dog onto other members’ plots.

 

 

Water charges

In the 2012/13 season we will be issuing two water bills, the first at the end of the summer season, when the main water usage will be clear. This will spread the cost, ensure the Allotment Group funds are available, and decrease payments due in the spring.

Allotment fees 2012

These will be held at £80 for a full plot (£40 for a half plot) for the second year running. That’s about 30p per day – less than the cost of a daily newspaper!
