Chadwell Allotment shop is only open on a Sunday 9.30 – noon. They have onion sets. Reminder that they will shut for the winter months.
Rosedale Road Report:
Thanks go to Tony B and Clive R for their work on the Boscombe end. New wheelbarrows purchased are in the barrow store by the main gate. Scrap will be taken next week. PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS TO GET RID OF HOUSEHOLD RUBBISH! e.g. garden chairs with fabric. This is for scrap metal/car batteries only to raise funds for the Association. Manure needed, also woodchip at Boscombe end. There have been some reports of blight on site. Dispose of any infected plants. Blight resistant tomato seeds are available e.g. Mountain Magic, Crimson Crush.
Please keep an eye out for any strangers on site as some members have had fruit go missing. A polite reminder that no produce should be taken from another plot without plot holder’s permission.
Bull Meadow Report:
Manure on site, scaffold board obtained, monies raised from sale of boards went into allotment funds. Andrew will phone a plot holder regarding pile of carpets left in the car park as we have had no reply to emails, also their uncultivated plot. DO NOT PUT HOUSEHOLD RUBBISH ON SCRAP HEAP.
No vacant plots, 14 names on the waiting list.
Wheelbarrows purchased, plumbing bill Bull Meadow, NSALG membership,
Council peppercorn rent paid.
43 members have paid subs.
IF YOU HAVE NOT PAID YOUR SUBS BY THE 30TH SEPTEMBER, £10 WILL BE ADDED TO YOUR INVOICE. IF YOU DO NOT INTEND TO WORK YOUR PLOT NEXT SEASON, PLEASE LET US KNOW a.s.a.p.
Thanks to Elaine for hopefully resolving the Bull Meadow Water Bill Saga!
Kings Seed Order books will be left in the Shelter at Rosedale. Jane will collate any orders, please let her have them by 30th October. (Books will be taken to Bull Meadow)
If anyone has spare produce, see Alan or leave them on plot 4N and he will sell them at the local club to raise funds.
It was decided that the AGM this year (because of the rule of 6) will be attended only by the committee member.
