The judges for Hayle in Bloom will be walking around the allotment Friday 05 July around half past ten, if a few of you can be there working on your plots and to chat it would be nice
Please come and help plant hawthorn bushes along the edge of the graveyard extension this Sunday (25th March) at 10:30 am, in collaboration with Hayle In Bloom.
Councillor Anne-Marie Rance from Hayle Town Council and Margaret Tanner from Hayle in Bloom have been in touch with the results of the Hayle in Bloom competition:
"We got 6 Neighbourhood awards. All were level 4 (Thriving) or level 5 (outstanding). The Lethlean Allotments jumped straight into a level 4 which is amazing considering they were only opened in March. Hayle got Gold in our category. We didn't win the cup. That went to Sidmouth. John Bennett won an award for the best web site. I'd like to pass on my congratulations and thanks to all of you at the allotments and I hope you all enjoy the allotments for many years to come." (Anne-Marie Rance)
If anyone is interested in more involvement in Hayle in Bloom, the next meeting is at 7pm on Monday 26th September at the Hayle Rugby Club.
Hayle in Bloom will be judged on Thursday 14th July and the judges will be coming to look at the allotments in the morning.
I will put up a definite time nearer the time, but it's looking like between 10-12. If anyone can come down to the site and show their support on that day, it would be great.
By the way:
I have left some flower plants in trays on the grass path near #5 which need sticking in the top of the wall or at the front of it - if anyone has time to put some in that would be amazingly helpful.
Hayle Allotment Society will be running a stall on King George's Walk on Sunday 26th June (2-5) at the Hayle in Bloom family celebration day.
The idea is to sell allotment produce and cakes to raise money and awareness of the Society, and to support Hayle in Bloom and generally be community-minded.
Please let Aimee know if you can help or donate allotment produce and/or cakes. So far, I have kind offers of potatoes from Sue and Steve and Nigel, bagged salad from Tina and Jane, cakes and produce from Carole and Joanna, and I have mangetout / sugarsnaps and some courgette and parsley plants.
If people could drop stuff off to Aimee's house on the morning (13 Caroline Row) or bring it along on the day, that would be fabulous. I will probably pop up to the allotments Sunday morning too, so you can hand stuff over if you see me.
