Annual General Meeting
The date for the AGM is Wednesday 6th February 2019. This year we have decided to hold the AGM on a weekday evening and we have also changed the venue to The Hawkinge Football Pavillion which is located next to Hawkinge Cricket Club. The doors will open at 7pm and the meeting will start at 7:30 prompt. We look forward to seeing you there, there will be some light refreshments available.
By The Way
Please do not drive any vehicle down the Central Pathway at the allotments, it is not designed to support motor cars and will damage the pathway. If you have a requirement to move large quantities of materials to or from your plot, please contact the Site Manager and he will make appropriate arrangements to assist with moving materials without causing damage to the pathways. Thank you.
One of our retired members has a GROW IT heavy duty polytunnel for sale. It comes in its original packaging and was advertised at £160 in 2017. The item is up for sale now at a bargain price of just £50 . If you’ve thought about a polytunnel and not got around to it – this is a great deal, Christmas present for yourself maybe ?
Any member who is interested should initially contact:- firstname.lastname@example.org
This post will be updated with further details on the item when it becomes available.
This coming Sunday we will be having a table at the Indoor Boot Fair in the Community Centre to sell off some of the tools, equipment and plants that we have accumulated to raise money for the Society.
If you have anything that you wish to contribute that you think would be saleable, please bring it along to the allotments on Saturday afternoon, when we will be loading up ready for the seven o’clock start on Sunday morning.
The doors open at 7:30am on Sunday for the fair and if you want to pop along and see what we have on offer, we would be pleased to see you.
After the success the blight resistant potatoes over the last couple of years we plan to order more for sale to members this year. The cost for these highly blight resistant potatoes is £1.75/kg. We are trying 2 different varieties this year as well as Kifli.
The 3 varieties available are:
Sarpo Kifli – Salad potato – creamy waxy potato. Sown as early main crop but will produce salad potatoes all season.
Sarpo Axona – Red maincrop (Aug to late Oct). It produces high yields of big regular tubers. Ideal for baking, mashing and roasting.
Sarpo Una –2nd Early (Jul – early Oct) Multipurpose variety which can produce nice waxy salad potatoes if harvested early or can be left in ground for a heavy crop of baking potatoes.
