Harington plant sale

Harington plant sale 
The Harington annual spring plant sale takes place on Saturday 4th May.  This is a great opportunity to pick up a range of plants.  It’s also an opportunity to visit the Scheme, which SHA supports through regular donations from our own plant sales, and are now looking to extend our links.  This week two committee members visited Harington to discuss ideas for how SHA might become more involved in their work  –  more information to follow shortly. 

Changes in the Trading shed
After a good number of years in the roles of Trading Shed Coordinator and Trading Manager, Lynn and Julia have decided it’s time for a change. They will be standing down after the last delivery of the year in September/October. We will all miss them greatly as they have done a brilliant job, but it is time for fresh faces to come forward with new energy and ideas. Could that be you?  

The two roles are distinct, but cooperation is essential to keep the Trading Shed running smoothly:
Trading Shed Coordinator, core tasks include: Coordinating the volunteers who work in the Trading Shed, recruiting and inducting new volunteers, ensuring stock is put out for sale and that it is clearly priced. 
Trading Manager, cores tasks include: Ordering stock, arranging deliveries, recruiting and coordinating volunteers to unload, maintaining records. 

Julia and Lynn have kindly offered an opportunity for shadowing them over the summer so you can find out how it is all done.
If you are interested in the roles or having a further chat about what is involved please email info@shepeherdshillallotments.co.uk

Are you looking for a polytunnel?

Garry Doyland is looking for a home for a polytunnel which is complete and in good condition. Only one of the two doors opens. Size is 3m by 2m.  If you are interested please contact Garry (plot 102A)
Are you missing a rake, spade or round white table?

It seems that the partying intruders who have been on the site recently have moved a few things around from plot to plot and a round white table, spade and rake have appeared around plots 36, 37, 38.  Are they yours?  If so, contact info@shepherdshillallotments.co.uk  Also, Jo (plot 36) is missing a low squarish plastic stool if anyone has found it.

Advance notice
Please note that on the day of our plant sale (Sunday 12th May) there will be NO PARKING at any time in front of the trading shed. 

Julie, Annie, Trevor, Julia, Juliet, Gary, Jill, Ian, Lynn (co-opted - Trading Shed Manager) and Nick (co-opted - Treasurer).
