Hello all - here is a plan for the BBQ on Sunday 18th September from 4pm, which will NOT go ahead because the forecast hasn't materialised and it's way too windy to be fun. Sorry everyone. We might need to rethink this - anyone fancy a night in the pub instead?
Hello all - here is a plan for the BBQ on Sunday 11th September from 4pm, which will be postponed if it is raining or excessively windy, but will go ahead otherwise.
UPDATE: THIS EVENT IS POSTPONED UNTIL NEXT WEEK (18th) BECAUSE OF UNSETTLED WEATHER
There will be an allotment BBQ celebration on Sunday 11th September in the late afternoon - all welcome, please bring some of your produce and your own BBQ / meat.
Over the next few days there will be a plan for the BBQ, but it's pretty much going to be "turn up with things to eat and drink" at aboiut 4pm on Sunday 12th, unless it's raining.
#ff0000;">Please spread the word - I will do some posters etc too.
Please note there will NOT now be a Society meeting on Monday 5th September
Report from Hayle Rose and Cabbage - special congratulations to Jane Siddorn and Tina Wood for winning Best Kept Allotments
Please pop along and support the Hayle Rose and Cabbage Show this Saturday (23rd July). Only £1.50 entry! Lots of lovely veg! If you think the vegetables can't match yours, then you know you should enter next year...
It is open to visitors from 11 - 6 in the Hayle Daycare Centre.
Those of you who have entered, you need to take your produce down there on Friday evening between 7 and 9, or on Saturday morning between 7 and 8:45.
May the best allotmenter win...
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.
Carole and Aimee are planning to meet in the Bucket of Blood at 8pm on Monday night (30th May) to SWOP SEEDS. Please come if you have seeds to swop or just want to get something new and interesting to plant.
Social Secretary Joanna organised a fantastic Easter Egg Hunt on the Allotments on Easter Sunday.
Nineteen children took part in challenges including "find a chive plant", "find an aphid" and "spot some rabbit droppings" (outside the fences, obviously) and an egg and spoon race. The all important cake was provided by Joanna, Wendy C, Aimee and Sophie and lots of people including Dick donated eggs for a raffle.
£12.50 was raised towards allotment funds!
Many thanks to all concerned.
