Reminder: Rent days and AGM

The East Ward Allotment Association AGM will be held on the 30th September from 10-11 in the shop. We will be voting on a rent increase from £21 to £25 per year (full rates, concessions will still be available), to cover rising costs. The chair will also report on the years activities and future plan, and we will confirm committee members and officers for the 2018-2019 season.

Rent Days will follow – please come to the allotment shop on either 7th or 14th October between 11 and 1 to pay your rent in person.


Mushroom Compost

A limited supply of mushroom compost is now available in the shop at £3 per bag. Each bag is 50lb (approx 100 litres), and contains wood-free compost which has been used to grow organically produced mushrooms. Spent mushroom compost is one of the best soil conditioners going. It is rich in nutrients and adds humus to the soil, making it much more easily worked.

AGM and rent days

Dear All,

It’s that time again! The Annual General Meeting of the Allotment Association will be held on Sunday 30th September, at 10 am in the Allotment Shop. We are proposing a small rent rise to cover increasing costs, but ours will remain one of the lowest rents in the city.

Everyone is welcome and we hope to see you there – this is your opportunity to hear about the work the EWAA committee do to keep the site running effectively and to ask any questions. If you may be interested in joining the committee, please do email us, or chat to a committee member in the shop or on site – we particularly need someone to take on the secretary role, including maintaining the website.

Following the AGM, rents will come due, and we will be taking payments in the shop on the 7th and the 14th of October from 11 until 1.

Site maintenance

We have had requests in the past for lists of jobs for people keen to help out but not able to get to our work parties. So, if you are up for a bit of extra activity beyond your own plot, please do cut back the brambles that are encroaching on the woodchip piles in the car park. They can be piled up at the very back, or taken to the front of plot 1 for burning later. Do wear gloves and keep an eye out for sharp objects in the heaps. Thanks!
