Vote of thanks!

This weekend over 20 members joined the two morning work parties, to help clear the mass of bramble and brush that was threatening to take over our paths and car parks. Some people came on both days, so a particular thank-you goes to them, and to the brownie bakers, and to Tony & Dan for coordinating the task force.

There are still 60 plot-holders who have not paid their rent for 2021-22!

If you did not receive an email please check your mailbox SPAM folder as soon as possible.

All rents must be paid by the end of the October.
