As the growing season ends and the light nights disappear, though the days may still be warm, they are getting noticeably shorter, and soon there will be the first, faint, unmistakable, autumn chill in the air.
Well, that’s what the books will tell you. This year has been strange, to say the least. The weather has led us on a merry dance at times.
I have to say the site and plots look very good. I thank you all for this. The inspections in July didn’t throw up any horrors thankfully. It is a relief when this happens. We have a strong waiting list now, which Nick is managing.
Just a reminder that for most of us the annual fees are due to be paid by October 1st ande you will receive a reminder later on this month.
If you don’t intend to continue please let us know so that we can offer your plot to someone else.
We will continue to follow the government and National Allotment Society guidance regarding the virus.
The social side of our society has been severely curtailed by the social distancing rules. The social evening was cancelled and the working parties were put on hold along with the BBQ’s.
However we are sure that it will all come back when restrictions allow us to do so.
While I would like to see us hold an AGM, this is not possible at the moment, please read the separate post on this issue.
So, looking forward to early autumn, there is still some picking to do and some planning and planting for winter.
Collect those seeds, look after your perennials and enjoy the fruits of your labour.
