Calverton and Woodborough Allotment Association

Our AGM is on Tuesday 19th October at the Village Hall in William Lee Memorial Park, Park Road, Calverton.  The meeting will start at 7.00 pm.  As I said last month there will be no speaker or competition so this will be a business meeting only.

By the end of September members should have received their seed and potato catalogues and with these their allotment rent and membership renewal letters.  It is beneficial to yourself and to the Association if you can place your orders as soon as possible and of course if you are ordering potatoes it is very important if you want to ensure the availability of the variety you want to grow.

As in previous years, members of the committee will be available on the mornings of Tuesday and Thursday 5th and 7th October to take both your allotment rent and Association membership subs.  Please note that this will not be in the Parish Council rooms (as in the past) but instead we will be in the Village Hall from 9.00am until 12 noon on both these days.
