December 21 newsletter

Thank you to everyone who came along to the Winter Warmer last month and made it such a success.  Even on a cold winter’s day, there was a great feeling of warmth and community, with the Barn providing the perfect setting for bringing people together.  We raised over £800, all proceeds to go towards funding site improvements planned for next year.
Willow Workshop
We had a very positive response to this, with lots of you interested in attending.  However, given the uncertainties around COVID we have decided to defer the January workshops until later in the year.  We've kept a note of those of you who expressed interest, and will contact you as soon as we have new dates.
Potatoes and shallots
It’s not too late to put in an order for these – most varieties still available (except Red Duke of York).  For the full list see here.
Waiting List
As with last year, we will be opening the waiting list briefly at the beginning of 2022 to accept the same number of people as plots we let this year (approx. 10).  Any enquiries to info@ receive a reply informing them of this policy and directing them to check the SHA website for further information.
