    Putting the pumps to bed for the winter

    RPA pump, covered for winter

    The growing season draws to a close and during the first week of November your Pump Team will be putting the pumps to bed for the winter. Can we remind plotholders that now is the time to make sure that the tanks are topped up so that we have a supply of clean water to work with when we recommission next spring. And please do not be tempted to remove the covers once in place.

  • AGM – you decide

    Date posted: Saturday 9th October 2021

    The committee would like to hold an actual AGM this year and quite a few plotholders have said they also want this.

    Before going ahead, we want to canvass all tenants to find out the best date and venue, or indeed whether a virtual AGM, like last year, would be preferable.

    We want to be confident that if we do have an actual AGM at least 40 plotholders will turn up, as that is the number needed to be quorate.
