The Children’s Allotment Festive Social event – 15th December

Dear All, 
Our neighbours at the Children’s Allotment (behind the EWAA shop) are having a winter warmer next weekend, please see details below and do offer them your support.
Best wishes, 
the EWAA team
Dear Allotment holders
We would like to let you know about our festive social event, which will be happening on Saturday the 15th of December from 3-5pm. We would very much welcome you to join us!
We expect to welcome volunteers and members of the public onto the Children’s Allotment site for a bonfire and story-telling event. There will also be refreshments and games! During this time we may have the main gate open but will be monitoring people coming in (we are asking for a donation from non-allotment members for entry as we are fundraising for the project).
If you’d like to find out more about what we are up to please come along and say hi!
All the best
Alice and the Children’s Allotment team!

Diary dates and potato fair

The shop will be open this week and next, then we will take a break over Christmas and the New Year, re-opening on the 6th of Jan.

You’ll be wanting to be getting back to the allotment after all that indoor activitiy and in the nick of time the ODFAA seed potato day  will also be on the 6th of Jan, 10.30 til 1.30 at West Oxford Community Centre with 60 varieties of potato and other fancy stuff for sale.

Work Party Weekend

Thanks to everyone who helped on Saturday and Sunday to clear, clip and cut our way through undergrowth and rubbish!

The site is looking much improved and as a result of all the hard work, we have created a new access path to the social area on the middle road, cleared the car parks, and, cleared pathways.

Thanks also to the cake-makers who made this an enjoyable social event.

If you didn’t make it to a work party this year, do come along next time; it really is an enjoyable and rewarding way to spend a morning, and, you’ll get to know some fellow allotment members.


Final Rent Day Reminder!

Thanks to all those who came along on the 7th and paid their rent. Can everyone else please come down this Sunday and settle their account too. We ask everyone to come to the shop at these times so that the committee, who are all volunteers and give up our own time run the site, can get everything done in a reasonable amount of time. If you don’t pay your rent at these sessions, it means we have to spend time figuring out who you all are, contacting you, and processing and recording the payments later on. This can add up to a significant amount of time!

We look forward to seeing everyone on Sunday.

Many thanks,

EWAA Committee.

Rent due 7th or 14th October

We will be taking rent payments in the shop the next two Sundays, 7th and 14th October, between 11 and 1. The annual rent was increased at the AGM last week to account for increasing costs. Full rent for a 10 pole plot is now £25. Full rent for a half plot (5 poles) is £12.50.

Concessions are available for the unwaged for the first plot only: £15 for a full plot, £7.50 for a half.

Please come in and pay your rent at one of these times, we look forward to seeing you!

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.
