Network Rail recently requested access to site to enable them to access the railway embankment to carry out some essential work on the trees.

A key has been issued to them and the works are due to start Wednesday 13th September., the work will be carried during the day and night and may go on for a number of weeks.

They will need to bring machinery on to site and I have given them to park it on the main car park when it isn’t in use., but have advised them that the car park will need to be clear for the BBQ & Show on the 24th September. In addition to this, they may well be moving around site with a large vehicle, a Unimog, dropping chippings and logs off in the bays around site, so please try not to park on or block any of the access roads.

If you have any queries or concerns about these works, then please contact me by email.

Today is a sad day in the history of our country, our Queen, who has reigned for 70 years died peacefully at Balmoral.

The country will now begin a state of mourning that will last for 10 days, therefore, after consulting with several members of our Management Committee I have made the decision to postpone our Annual BBQ & Show.

It will now be held on Saturday 24th September.

BBQ & Show

Good evening Gardeners.

Just a quick reminder that our annual BBQ & Show will be held this weekend, Saturday 10th September.

If you have any produce that you would like to enter into the show, please present it to Steve Yorke in the Polytunnel before 12 noon, also, we have some great prizes in the Raffle, but any additional donations will be gratefully received and can be dropped off at the Polytunnel.

Food and drink will be available from 12 noon, and as usual, it is free of charge. There will be Burgers, Hot Dogs, Chilli, there will also be meat free options, Mushy Peas, Plant & Spicy Bean Burgers and Veg Curry. Alcoholic & non alcoholic, hot and cold drinks will be available.

Last year’s event was a big success, and I’m sure this year’s will be just as successful. This event isn’t just for plot holders, bring your family and /or friends along.
