Date for your Calendar – Friday 15th April 2022 – Read on!

Our Allotments Association have had a long lasting relationship with the Huntley & Palmers Allotments Association based at the Culver Lane Allotments site and tenants have been able to purchase many of their on-site shop products using their ‘Trading Shed’ low-cost membership together with the annual H & P Price Lists, published for your convenience in our Special Bulletins.

The Trading Shed

Now, in a first for our Association and in a joint venture, we are going to stage a Pop-Up shop on the Reading Road site. Huntley & Palmers ‘Trading Shed’ has offered to bring many of their shop products to our site for you to purchase and they will also be able to take orders for anything that they don’t have with them on the day.

The date for your calendar is Friday 15th April 2022 from 10am till 12.30pm. The Pop-Up shop will be located outside the Launchpad poly-tunnel at the bottom of Jersey Knoll (Rows J-K).

We expect this to be the first of a number of events we are looking to stage this year so please come along and support this innovative event.

NOTICE OF URGENT INFORMATION FOR ALL ALLOTMENT TENANTS

Allotment Plot A30 – Sport in Mind Charity activity morning for children.
Sunday 13th February 2022

Although the Committee were not consulted about this and have yet to be officially informed by the Sport in Mind charity, the Committee has recently been made aware that the charity has independently arranged an activity morning for children from 10am -12noon at the Reading Road allotment site on the Sport in Mind allotment Plot – A30 this Sunday 13th February.

The Committee have been given no details so cannot confirm how many children have been invited, what they will be doing or where they will be going.

We understand they are to be dropped off but we also have no additional information about how parents will access the site and whether this could be an issue for tenants planning to visit their allotment plots.

We therefore ask you to be mindful that there may be children walking around the allotment site and, if you are visiting your allotment plot this Sunday morning, we urge you to keep a watchful eye and stick rigidly to the 5mph speed limits at all times.

If you have any concerns about this event or would like to comment
please contact Woodley Town Council on admin@woodley.gov.uk

February 2022 Newsletter Published

We have just published the February Newsletter using our new mailing list and all seems to have worked well with only one bounce back error!! We have also continued to hand-deliver paper copies to plot holders who do not have an Internet connection.

We can see that there are still a number people who were on the old mailing list who have not yet signed up to the new mailing list. As a temporary measure, we have left a number of additional paper copies in a waterproof bag in the box on the main gate notice board. Please feel free to take one.

If you do want to receive an email/PDF copy of the monthly Newsletter and any further Special Bulletins including information about the up-coming EGM next Wednesday, then you can easily sign up by scanning the QR code in the posters we have attached to the main gate as you go in/out of the site, or by scanning the QR code in the image below.
