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.
