Queens Park Allotment (active group)

Most of the plot is now divided into mini-plots, with individuals each taking responsibility for a numbered mini-plot. 'Garden together' events, where as many members as possible come along are posted on the website regularly. Large tools are provided but please bring your own small trowel, fork and gloves. If you are interested in having a mini-plot, please register on the website and post a comment with your enquiry.

Sorry to hear that you are leaving Maggie, Jenna I would like to carry on with my plot next year.

I shall try to attend the garden together p, however I will be travelling back from Suffolk that morning so not yet sure of my timings.

Yes, I also express my thanks to Maggie for all your dedication and hard work, and to Ian and Jenna for stepping in to co-ordinate our gardening community.

Unfortunately, I can't make it on Sat 3rd, but I usually pop up there on Sundays, and will probably be able to go on the 4th.

I would like to continue my plot next year. I like Nilufer's suggestion of help in improving the soil, how to look after the plots better and what vegetables grow best? My potatoes were successful this year, but not much else!

Best wishes,

Thanks Maggie for your dedication and support of the group/plot. You have been great.

Also thanks to Ian and Jenna for stepping up. I should be able to give you a hand at organizing things in the future.

I wont be able to make it on the 3rd as I will be in Wales.

Looking forward to catch up with you guys and see how we can sustain the work.

Warm regards

Great Ian,

Yes it would be good to get everyone together, maybe we could combine a big clear up of the allotment to prepare for winter?

I could do the the first  Saturday in October?

Hello Ian,

It was nice to see you in the Queens Park festival last weekend with exciting raw food alternatives. As I mentioned there, could we get together one Saturday morning to learn a bit of soil and how to look after the plots better with your direction (we could all decide what people prefer to learn)...What do you say?

Dear Maggie,

I have just returned from 2 weeks holiday and am very sorry to hear your news, my sincere condolences.

Jenna, I am happy to help you with the coordination of the plot going forward. I will be at the park on Thursday as I deliver Richards veg bag to him each week. Please call me to discuss how i can help; my number is 07896 484286.

That's great Jenna! I hope others step up to help too, although it's probably better if just one person liaises with Richard Gentry and Mick Guerin. Would it be OK for me to give them your email? (They are not allowed to look at our website in working hours!) If OK, can you email your email to me at maggieturp@googlemail.com and I will pass it on... Best Maggie

Hi all,

I couldn't get a spare top for the tap. The hose fittings are now in the tennis hut along with the only tap top. If anyone forgets to return it, that's the end of the matter as the tap is archaic and spare tops are not available. You have been warned! I have also put a padlock in the tennis hut set to 1945 and asked Mick Guerin to sort out the shed door again.

I wanted to get these things done before letting you know that I am leaving and that the group will need a new coordinator. My mother died a month ago and I am incredibly busy. In any case, it is probably time that someone else took a turn at the wheel. Will one of you (or two of you) step forward? The role involves organising 'garden together' dates, liaising with Richard Gentry and Mick Guerin and letting would-be members know when a plot becomes free. 

I am giving up my own plot from now, so it is vacant, together with Barbara's plot on the other side of the pea wire netting, so someone could have the whole bed. First come, first served, so do post if you would like to take up the whole bed.

I'm happy to give growing advice if needed and also to plant the beans again on the tennis fence next year. By the way, there are beans coming on to pick there now if anyone wants them...

Best wishes to all, Maggie

Hi Nilufer, I can't leave the tap top up there as it belongs to the park and I can't lend it out. As per previous posts, I am trying to buy a spare one. Mark has tried too. Any other thoughts on this welcome. Meanwhile, Phil and I topped up the water butt with the hose and there is water in there - or at least there was n Tuesday evening.  Cheers, Maggie
