No-one looks forward to an AGM as they are perceived as being pretty boring, but we normally rattle through the statutory bits, to give time for members to have their chance to have their say about how their Allotment Association is run. Please try to attend – there is a bar in the Community Centre.......!
Committee members. We desperately need more Committee members. We are required by the Constitution to have a Chair plus five, but currently have four committee members as Phil Hart has stood down and I will be standing down as Chair at the AGM. The Association cannot run the Allotment in the way in which we would all wish without a full Committee which is representative of the members, so please volunteer!
Field Secretary. Up until four years ago, we, like many other allotments, had a Field Secretary who looked after many of the small tasks which needed attention on a daily basis. It is possible that there may be a member who would like to take on this task – if there is, please let me know! It is suitable for someone who can spare about four or five hours a week to keep the container in good order, carry out a bit of strimming and mowing, mend the wheelbarrows and generally keep an eye on the site. There is a small honorarium payable.
The Manure Man will be asked to cease deliveries at the end of October so that his Land Rover and trailer don't chew up the roadways in the wet. Get your orders in now!
