Calverton and Woodborough Allotment Association

After what has been a relatively mild and rather wet Winter we are now into Spring with early blossom on trees and shrubs, Spring bulbs flowering and of course the grass growing on apace!  Calverton Parish Council has recently let a number of allotments to new tenants and we wish them every success. They and existing members will be wanting to get onto their allotments preparing the soil for this year’s crops.  Remember that the association has a wide range of garden supplies available for sale and a range of power tools for hire which would make the job easier. 

Can I remind you that the Trading Shed is not generally open. In order to comply with guidelines you should ring  Malcolm on 07814879720, tell him what you need and agree a time when you will collect it.  He will leave your purchase outside the trading shed and you will collect.  Payment to be arranged with Malcolm.  This procedure seems to be working well.

Finally the water on site should now have been turned on for the season but can I take this opportunity to ask you all to check for leaks in your hosepipes and not to leave your site with a sprinkler running as these can lead to a huge waste of water.

Set in Britain, this magical fantasy adventure imagines a world in which Peter Pan and Alice in Wonderland are siblings.

When their eldest brother dies, Peter and Alice seek to save their parents from despair until they are forced to choose between home and imagination, setting the stage for their iconic journeys into Wonderland and Neverland.

“Although elements of the two source stories will be familiar to audiences of any age, Goodhill has created a fresh tale that flies.” (Times ★★★★)
