Last chance for potato orders

Dear Fellow Plot Holders
This is your last minute call for potato orders.
 
I will be sending our order off in the first week in December, but you still have time to pick up an order form from the association shop this coming Sunday 26th November (open 11am-noon), provided you can get it back to me by the following Sunday (December 3rd).
 
All best wishes,
 
Felicity

Allotment rent due for 2017-18

Dear Association members,

Many thanks to those of you who have already paid your rent for the forthcoming year. For those of you who have not yet paid, there is one last opportunity to do so.

You can pay your rent at the Association shop (on the Twenty Pound site) between 10am and 12pm next Sunday (17th September). Please remember to do this, as if the Committee have to chase people for rent it becomes very time-consuming. Indeed the rules allow the Committee to charge late payment fines and we are actively considering this as an option.

A full plot costs £25 for the year and a half plot costs £12.50. Cheques can be accepted and should be made payable to: Osney, St Thomas & New Botley Allotment Association.

Botley Meadow gate combination change

An increase in the amount of fly-tipping at the Botley Meadow site has resulted in a decision to change the combination of the gate lock.

This change will take place on Saturday September 30, with the new code being written in your Rent Book.

All members are reminded of the requirement to close and lock the gate every time they enter or leave the site.

Seeds and seed potatoes available from the shop

Dear Fellow Allotmenteers,

As ever, we hope that as many of you as possible will order seeds and seed potatoes through us for next year. We will have order forms for both ready to give out when you come into the shop to pay your rent next month (remember – first three Sundays in September 10am to 12pm).

We have some catalogues from Wallis Seeds to give out, but not enough for everyone, so hope that some of you may find it as easy to look online and then fill out your forms to return to us with your payment by the end of October. We expect to have the orders in for you to collect from the shop in December.

We order our seed potatoes from BHGS who supply them in 2 kg bags, which will arrive in February. You pay for them when you collect your order from the shop.

If you have any queries, please contact us.

With all good wishes, Felicity and Sally.

Second BBQ of the summer at Botley Meadow

Dear Botley Meadow Allotment members,

We are having our second BBQ of the summer on Sunday August 27th from 2pm onwards. It is the Bank Holiday weekend so we will have Monday to recover…

As usual it is a ‘bring and share’ event (we don’t use any of the Association funds to cover this) – so please bring what food and drink you can!

It will be held on the grassy area outside Glenn’s shed (plots 58 & 59) in the north-west corner of the site.

We look forward to seeing you there.
