Good home required for a Greenhouse

The Society has been offered a Greenhouse that needs a new home rather than head for the tip! It is 8′ x 6′ approx. and has plastic windows so would be suitable for use on the allotments or a members home. If you wanted the greenhouse then you would have to dismantle and transport it yourself to its new site. For more details and information please contact Nick at

Sarpo Potatoes

Those members that ordered potatoes from us should now have them in their possession, or very soon will have! We do have about 10 Kilos left of the KIFLI variety.  This is an all year salad potato, which is disease tolerant and high yielding.  Because we ordered in bulk we are able to pass on the savings to members and the cost per kilo is just £1.00  If you would like to purchase some, please email the Chairman
