Afternoon Tea

You are invited to John & Pat Meloy’s Afternoon Tea Party which is being held at their home (1 Apple Close, Hawkinge, CT18 7QB) this coming Saturday 25th May, from 2 o’clock onwards.

There will be Cream Teas available as well as quiche and a huge variety of cakes. There will also be a raffle, plants for sale and bric-a-brac.

All the funds raised will be shared equally between the Allotment Society and Alzheimer’s Society. Please come along and support this event if you possible can and help two very worthwhile causes!

Working weekend

Due to the bad weather at our event at the beginning of April, we are having another try this Saturday. If you can spare an hour or two Saturday morning there is a lot of painting that needs attention on our furniture that we use outside the clubhouse. Hope to see you then!

Next Weekend 6/7 April

Chris our site-manager will be around on both Saturday and Sunday to supervise and oversee all the work that needs doing. He will be there from 10 o’clock in the morning on both days and if you can spare a couple of hours on either day your help and assistance will be much appreciated.

Mole Hills

A good friend of the Society has laid some traps along the centre pathway at the allotments to try and catch some of the moles who are leaving their mark on several plots as well as the path.

Please be careful not to disturb them when walking along the paths and if you see any fresh mole hills please leave them in tact so that the mole catcher knows where to site and further traps.

Thanks
