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.
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.
