Calverton and Woodborough Allotment Association

Normally at this time of year I would be letting you know about the alternative venues for trips we are considering both for Spring and Autumn.  Unfortunately under the current circumstances this is not possible but we will all go on working our allotments and enjoying the benefits that this brings.

You will be needing various garden sundries in the coming weeks as you sow seeds and prepare for the new season.  The trading shed is fully stocked at present with new season compost including grow-bags, potting, multi-purpose and peat free as well as various types of fertiliser.  It also carries a range of canes and netting to support and protect your produce.  However, probably because of Covid, there has already been a large demand and our stocks are getting low so to avoid disappointment you need to order early. 

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.  Hopefully this will work well.

Finally can I once again encourage anyone who would like to try their hand at managing an allotment to contact the Parish Clerk as there are still some sites available.
