We will be taking rent collections tomorrow (23rd September) AND ALSO ON THE 30th September. This is an extension of the previous dates given.
Rent collection times strictly between: 10am-12noon.
Where: Committee Room. Cost: £20/half and £40/full.
***Please don’t forget your rent card.*** A new rent card is £1.00. If you don’t have your rent card on you, you will be issued a new card and charged.
This is a call for biscuits. We will be serving teas and coffees at the Nunhead Art Trail Hut Exhibition – and would also like to offer something scrummy to nibble on.
If you could volunteer to cook some biscuits or cupcakes (or a baked item that is easy to hold, as we don’t have plates or knives to cut cakes)….that would be fab. Please drop off at the following:
Times: 10am-6pm. Where: Hut. Dates: Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th September.
Just a note that the September Working Bee has been shifted from the 15th to SEPTEMBER 29 AND 30, to coincide with the Nunhead Art Trail.
If you could spare an hour sometime during 11am and 6pm on either day, to help out at the gate or in the hut, it would be very much appreciated.
RENT INCREASE /RENT COLLECTION
As per the AGM in April, rents have increased: FULL PLOT £40 / HALF PLOT £20.
Rent will be collected on the following Sundays: September 2nd, 9th, 16th and 23rd (Not the 30th, due to the Nunhead Art Trail).
Times – strictly between: 10am – 12pm. Bring your rent card – a new one costs £1.00!
The next Working Bee/Party will be on Saturday 15th August. 1pm-3pm. Meeting at the newly decorated Committee Room – come and have a look! It’s FABULOUS.
Help is needed on the Committee and in the Shop. The two Social Secretaries are standing down, and the Shop requires volunteers to help staff it. We also need people to be on a mowing rota.
If you are interested in any of these activities – please email.
The Shop is open for 2 hours each week during the growing season. We are happy to put together a rota for this – so the load can be shared.
The Social Secretaries do things such as: organise the Harvest BBQ / Coach trips to the RHS Gardens / email monitoring / this website! / the newsletter.
If you are sparky and communicative please do put your hand up. Ideally it is shared between 2 or 3 people – the more the merrier!
The grass in the communal areas (when we have it!) needs regular mowing. Currently the two gentlemen who mow have to stop due to health. So please email if you can help out once in a while.
A massive THANK YOU to all those wonderful people who turned up last Saturday to help paint the Committee Room and Shop – in preparation for the Nunhead Art Trail exhibition.
We hadn’t QUITE finished – as you probably are aware.
So – to try and keep momentum on this particular task, we are announcing a completely spontaneous working party for:
SATURDAY 287TH JULY. Meet at the Committee Rooms at the Hut.
Alan will keep the Hut open from around 10am through to 4pm – for anyone to drop in for a short time and help out.
As ever, we have tea and coffee and lovely things to eat, as a huge thank you.
NUNHEAD ART TRAIL AND THE ALLOTMENTS
The Stuart Road Allotments will be holding an exhibition in our Hut for the Nunhead Art Trail on the 29th and 30th September.
This is a call for Allotment Members to put their names forward as being interested in participating. That is, being part of a group of artists exhibiting and/or selling their works in the Allotment Hut (Shop and Committee Room).
Please drop us an email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are collecting numbers of interested people in the first instance, and will be forwarding more information, application forms and terms of entry in the coming weeks.
As part of the Nunhead Art Trail we will be exhibiting Scarecrows that have been submitted as entries in our Scarecrow Competition!
The competition will be judged at our Annual Harvest BBQ in early September.
More details coming – but put on your thinking hats….or scarecrow hats….
As part of the 100th Anniversary celebration events, the allotments will be hosting a stall at the Stuart Road Street Party on Sunday 3rd June. Our stall is planned to run from 1pm through to 4pm.
We would love some help on the stall, volunteers and plants. Signs are up on the gates with further information.
If you’re interested please get in touch. It should be a fabulous day, and the more the merrier.
We have had contact from TWO LOCAL community gardens – asking for assistance:
- St Mary’s Frobisher Gardening Group
- Dulwich Veg Garden
St Mary’s Frobisher Gardening Group
The St Mary’s Frobisher Gardening Group have permission for a community gardening group to develop the 5 grow boxes at the back of the park, as well as some surrounding beds.
If you are interested in being involved, please join their facebook page:
