Please note that due to only a few members wanting to go RHS Wisley this year, the coach transfer has been cancelled. We are now asking those members that are still interested to make their own travel arrangements. Full details are within in the attached poster. Apologies for any inconvenience this has caused.

Would you like a Polytunnel on your plot ?
The HAS Committee now has available a number of tunnels that could be erected on your plot for the coming season. For the full specification, including contact details, please see the following link.
If you have a spare hour or two over the weekend please come and help to lop and tidy the hedges on the site. Any time from 10am until 4pm on both Saturday and Sunday (17th/18th).
Free sausage baps to all volunteers around 1230/1pm.
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.

The potatoes have now arrived in Hawkinge and there are plenty of extra potatoes if you have not already ordered yours. To save transporting 125kg of potatoes to the AGM, Dawn would be most grateful if people would now collect their orders from her next Saturday afternoon (27th January) or give her a ring or / email (firstname.lastname@example.org ) to arrange a different time. Please pay in cash @ £1.50/kg. Dawn will bring the excess potatoes to the AGM so you can also buy them there if you’ve not already ordered.
If you have not ordered your blight resistant potatoes yet, don’t worry there is still some time. Please contact our treasurer very soon with your requirements. (email@example.com).
Details of the varieties available can be found in earlier posts.
