Happy New Year. 
Important info. about the Trading Shed.
But first..... are you missing the chairs in the photo below?
Nadia on plot 37 said that towards the end of December the partying intruders yet again visited her plot and left these chairs- probably 'borrowed' from some other plot. If they are yours do get in touch via info@shepherdshillallotments.co.uk


Trading Shed News

Welcome to probationers and new tenants who have arrived on the site over the last few months, and who might not have made their first visit to the Trading Shed yet. We are still on reduced Winter opening hours, that will change soon, see below. The Trading Shed sells a range of gardening essentials for allotment gardeners, at competitive prices, and right on your door step. It is run by a group of over 20 volunteers and proceeds from sales support site activities.


Trading Shed Annual Subscription

There is a £2.00 annual subscription to use the Trading Shed, due in January; this money goes towards running and maintenance costs. The subscription was formally agreed at the site association AGM in November 2018. From this year, we will be recording subscription payments against plot numbers, so make a note of your plot number before you come in if you are unsure (and maybe check the plot number is still clearly displayed on your plot).


Potato Sunday is February 17th, 11.00 - 13.00 in the Trading Shed at the Montenotte Road end of the site.
