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.

A reminder that the grounp now communicates via a QPA WhatsApp group. If you would like to join, send me a text on 07986599848 with your name and a request to join and I will add you to the group. This applies also to people who find their way to this site and would like to be considered for a plot when a vacancy arises. Maggie

PS I am away from the UK until October 1st. Will respond to any communications as soon as possible after that date.

Hi to everyone and especially new members. We have found it more convenient this last year or so to communicate via a QPA WhatsApp group. If you would like to join, send me a text on 07986599848 with your name and a request to join and I will add you to the group. 

Meanwhile, Sally is organising this year's Big Dig for March 31st, so do keep the day free if you possible can. Maggie

Thanks, Kirsty, and all of you who have put in your contribution to the new hose and wooden edging. For those of you who haven't got around to it yet, the request is for a one off donation of £10. The bank transfer details are:

Happy New Year to everyone!

Merry Christmas and happy new year everyone. J will transfer across £10 in the next day or two for the new hose! Thanks

Hi Maggie, just made the transfer. Sorry for the delay ! Hope you are all having nice xmas holidays. marie

Thanks Manori! Also Patrizio and Alison. Everyone else, if you could put £10 for QPA on your Christmas list, there would be great rejoicing (and a new hose...)!

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

40 47 75


Dr Margaret D. Turp

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 everyone,

I'm attaching an updated map of the allotments now. The waiting list is now clear! :)

Can everyone who hasn't done so please send me their mobile number (to 07533272332) so I can add you to the WhatApp group that we use to organise the Big Digs etc.?

The code to the shed is 1999, please always lock it after you've grabbed something from there as it has a lot of tennis stuff in that we need to make sure stays there! :)

Patrizio/Alison, Manori/Jules, Giorgio/Imke: I have moved some things around so you can all now have full half plots (see map below). Thanks for coming today!

Helen C, Amelia and Lily: I have allocated you plots as requested - take a look at the map below. Helen C and Amelia, please find a way in the spring to make your division clear (little fence/piece of wood etc.).

Sarah and Marie: the same about dividing your plots into halves.

Mark and Tom: Mark is overwintering some things in his plot ready for a changeover in spring. Mark, can you please post on here once you have harvested your goodies so Tom knows when he can start planting?

That's it! See you in the spring...
