Matters Arising:

Letters or emails have been sent to plot holders of neglected plots, it was agreed that the tenants of uncultivated plots will not have their agreement renewed in October. We received complaints of a plot holder having a large fire causing lots of smoke on the Rosedale Site, please consider our neighbours as they can and do complain to the Council.

OUR OPEN DAY WILL BE HELD ON SATURDAY 18TH AUGUST. Donations of spare produce/ preserves would be appreciated, and home-made cakes (Also, any help on the day)Clive R will arrange fliers. (Thanks Clive)

CANTERBURY FOOD & DRINK FESTIVIAL IS ON 22ND SEPTEMBER, if there is enough interest, I will try to arrange a coach (cost usually around £17 pp) Please contact me via e-mail asap to have your name added to the list – Thank you.
