Autumn Newsletter

All members should by now have received an email containing the latest HAS Autumn newsletter. It certainly is worth a read -if you have not yet read it or have mislaid your copy then its useful to know that newsletters are always archived on the web site for later reference. One amendment has since been made to the original with a correction of the email address of our site manager. All other details remain the same and a link to the Newsletter is here:-

HAS Allotment Competition and Judging

Please be aware that the judging of the plots this year, for our annual competition, will take place during the week commencing  the 25th June. As is usual, all plots will be examined by our independent judges. (Unless you’ve previously requested exclusion from the competition). The Judges will of course need to gain access to each members plot to closely examine the crops.  (The full judging criteria can be found within the documentation section of this site.) Finally, the results will be announced during the open day  on the 8th July. Keep it looking its best and Good Luck.

Party time with Sausage Baps

Yes its that time again when we ask all our membership to volunteer if you can and take part in our first working party of the year. The event will take place over Saturday & Sunday 17 / 18 February. 10:30 till 12:30 & 13:30 till 16:00 on both days. Chris our site Manager will be coordinating the work, which will mainly be focused  along the southern hedgerow, but other tasks around the site will need to be undertaken, time permitting. Members are requested to bring their own tools (Pruning Saws, Shears, Hedge Trimmers, Clippers, axes and some safety gear gloves etc). It would certainly help to get as many members as we can during the weekend to undertake the work in hand.   Whether it be for one hour, one session, one day or both days all members time will be really appreciated and enable us to get the site ready for the season ahead.
Oh and yes, sausage baps are on the menu both days during the lunch hour and will be available for the working teams. We really need your help, so please come along if you can spare some time. Hope you can join the party and look forward to seeing you there.
