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.

Hi everyone!

The top to the outside tap was left on the tap when Phil and I were at the allotments on Wednesday evening. We took it off and gave it to the guy in the tennis hut. Not sure if it was an allotment member or one of the park staff, but if it was you you can reclaim it from the hut.  Maggie

Should be fine - will text you on the weekend to confirm!

Hi Colm,

Apologies for delay. Busy with Big Dig preps. I will be in the Park again this coming Sunday, weather permitting, at around 12.30. Let me know if that works for you and we can fine-tune. My mobile number is 07986599848. Maggie

Is it OK with everyone if photos taken at the Big Dig get used on our brochure page in the Queens Park Open Studios and Gardens brochure? 

Can you post here within the next couple of days if you are NOT OK with it. Silence will be taken as consent...

Great day on Sunday! Thanks for all the hard work and good fun to those of you who made it (and bad luck for missing out to those of you who couldn't.) Maggie

Hi Maggie - sorry I can't make it tomorrow as my brother is visiting this weekend from Ireland - but can we meet soon so you can formally allocate me the plot and show me the tools etc? let me know!

Can you bring hand tools, gardening gloves and, if you can manage it, a large fork or spade on Sunday? Don't worry if not - but there won't be enough tools for everyone so it would be helpful. Look forward to seeing you, Maggie.

Hi again everyone,

Just to say that Mick Guerin has now confirmed refreshments for us in the cafe - soup, sandwich or cake and a drink - so we can take a break when we feel like it. See those of you who can come on Sunday. Looking forward to it. Maggie

Hi all! Sorry I won't be able to make Sunday, I am away for a few weeks. I planted some seeds before I left so I just wondering if someone could water then if they happen to be down at the allotment? Although reading Maggie's latest message I think it might still be very wet in the UK so may well not need it!!! Thanks!

Looking forward to seeing those of you who can come - looks like there will be a dozen or so of us - on Sunday at 12.30. Mick has promised wood chip and the famous FYM and maybe refreshments - but yet to be confirmed.

The area around the allotments is extremely muddy - some of the grass is under water - so wear boots and waterproof trousers if you have them. If you are thinking of bringing children, please bear in mind that it will be slippery when we have walked on it for a bit, so they may fall and are in any case likely to get covered in mud. 

Happy days! At least the forecast is dry for Sunday!

See you there, Maggie
