I am planning to make a start on Sunday March 20th at 2.00. I think Kate is usually there at that time and maybe others would like to come along and we can make it a bit of a 'Garden Together'. What do you think?  Maggie

1. I can come on 16th. Thought I wasn't back but find I am! A bag of wood chip/shreddings to fix up the path would be useful as well as the (welcome) manure. Park are usually amenable to supplying...

2. Map - great idea. Being a bit of an idiot in these matters I couldn't edit it. I know Eve and Jacob are active on the other part of Nilufer's plot. Leo, a new member, has taken over the other half of my rectangular plot, so they could go on map. I also have the plot Phil and I made for Louisa (who then left) last year. It is right by the path on the way to the tennis courts and at present covered with weed-proof fabric. 

Hope others will post soon and stake their claims and tell us about the other spaces that seem to be available. I think a new member Kim may be waiting for a plot if one is free. Glad that Kate can have her second plot...

Thanks Kate. I will get back to you about another plot when everyone has posted. Not sure at the moment who is continuing and who not... And thanks for the film! I shall send it on.  Maggie

Hi Maggie,

I want to keep my plot please. I would also be happy to take on another plot if one became available (there seems to be an empty one next to me already??). I'm happy to organise a garden together in the summer as I will be around. I'm not sure I can commit to a watering rota however as I am already very busy with my young children.

We come to the allotment every sunday from about 2pm onwards so would be happy to join in with anyone else at this time...

Congratulations on your daughters pregnancy - i made a film about babies i would love to give you to show to her. its called "babyhood". (www.babyhood-film.com)

Thanks maggie

Hi there, It looks as if Jenner has left us. She is not responding... (Not too late, Jenner, if you see this...)

So we need to think what to do. I am having a hand operation in April and will be out of action for a month or two, then my daughter is having a baby up in Glasgow at the end of June and I will be away until mid-September.  So I'm not in a position to step n, not this year at least. We either need someone to co-ordinate this year or to organise for different people to take on different tasks.

I could organise one garden together before my hand op and I don't mind being the contact person for the Mick Guerin and liaising between the Park and the group via the website.

Would someone else (or several people between them) undertake to organise garden togethers over the rest of the summer?

Is anyone willing to co-ordinate so that we can be part of the Queens Park Gardens Open Day in June? (I have received a request but will not be in London.)

Is anyone willing to organise a watering rota for when it stops raining?

Meanwhile, it is important to have all the plots cultivated, so can you post right away to say whether or not you want your plot this season? If you don't post, I guess we will have to assume you don't want your plot and it will be re-allocated. (Kim, are you looking to have a plot when one becomes available?)

PLEASE POST SAYING (1) WHETHER YOU WANT YOU PLOT AND (2) WHAT YOU CAN CONTRIBUTE TO HELP ENSURE THAT THE PROJECT KEEPS GOING.

All best, Maggie

This is from Mick Guerin:
Hi Nilufer
 
The old lock was broken. We are having new metal doors installed on the shed very soon, once they are in place I will arrange for keys to be cut so that you all have access.
 
Thanks Mick.

Hi Nilufer,

I don't know it either, Nilufer,but the person to contact is:

Mick.Guerin@cityoflondon.gov.uk

Let us know how you get on.

Do you know if Jenner's organising anything? She seems to have gone off the radar...  Best Maggie

Dear All,

I would like to use the spade in the shed but its locked, I used to have the pin code and open and use the tools, but someone changed it... If anyone knows the pin code for the shed could you please send it to my mobile for security reasons. 07436 102 924..many thanks..nilufer

Hi Kim and welcome! A member called Jenner is co-ordinating the group at present. Do you have any thoughts on a 'garden together' day, Jenner! Look forward to meeting you Kim.  Maggie
