Thanks so much, Maggie! I've just contributed (and my partner Jules will, too). Many thanks to you and Helen for organising it all. We will be down at the allotment this afternoon if anyone is around :)

Hi everyone,

There is no rent or charge for having a mini-plot and we have never asks for money before, but right now there are a few things that need to be bought and I wonder if members, old and new. would be willing to chip in?

Our hose went kaput last summer and I replaced it with an old one of my own, but that is cracking up now as well. Because of the long length required and the merits of getting a good quality hose that will last, we are looking at about £70. 

We could also do with more wooden edging to demarcate the new beds and tidy the whole place up. Probably another £70 for the amount we need. 

Also some more spare hose tap tops would be useful, £20 for half a dozen. 

If you're willing to contribute £10 per person (rather than per plot) to make this possible - or a little more if you can afford it and are feeling generous - please transfer it to me and I will list the receipts and purchases so you all know where the money has gone. Give as the reference 'QPA' and your name, so that I can keep track.

The account details are:

First Direct

I hope this doesn't feel like too much if an imposition and, obviously, don't contribute if you can't spare the £10.

A Happy Christmas and New Year to you all, and see you in 2019.

Many thanks - I think from all of us - to Helen for her brilliant work on sorting out member allocations and producing the map.

Helen, are you in a position to print off a few copies of the map and leave them in the shed, or otherwise email me a printer-friendly version? The park-keepers have asked to know who the new people are, so that they can keep an eye out for non-members taking stuff that they shouldn't. Maggie

Hi Helen,

My partner Jules will be there in my place as I'm on my way to the airport. He'll be there for 1pm and looks forward to meeting you all! Thanks so much.

Hi Emily, thanks for letting us know and sorry we have never met. We are first on the waiting list so I'd be pleased to take care of your plot going forward, can you please explain which one is yours? Thanks! Alison.

Helen – if your offer is still valid we (Patrizio + Alison) would be available on both induction days, our preference would be Saturday. Let us know if which day is confirmed.

Evening all, 

Unfortunately Owain and I are moving early in 2019 and so won't be able to keep our plot. That means it can also be added to the list of available spaces and hopefully someone new can enjoy it!

All the best,

hi Helen unfortunately i cant make those times this weekend ... but maybe i ll manage to meet someone afterwards who can summarise the info to me :) Also i would be interested to discuss the "square foot gardening" concept if someone has knowledge on it or if someone has good books to recommend ? i m mostly available to garden on momdays, thursdays, fridays (mornings essentially) in case someone would like to garden together. (at this stage would be cleaning only i guess). leaving my phone in case 07879525274. have a nice day
