Plot holders should be aware that the Council is expected to carry out a site inspection of this allotment in late May.
The precise date is not known. Plot holders should take advantage of this early warning and of the improved spring weather to ensure that at least 75% of the plot, on a visual inspection, is cultivated. This 75% figure was the criterion applied last year and it is reasonable to assume that it will apply again this year.
Also, remember to ensure that your plot is clearly marked. This could make a difference. Plot markers are available from the Trading Hut for as little as £1.
If anyone is aware of any extenuating circumstances why someone is unable to work his/her plot, then please let me know. Otherwise, let’s get down to it and avoid the controversies of last year.

This is what goes on at the allotment site when a delivery arrives for the Trading Hut.....
It's all hands on deck....
The lorry arrives. Arthur & Derek are keen to get stuck in straight away....
That's Arthur & Derek
Ron is making a cup of coffee for the driver
Arthur & Derek are keen to unloading straight away....
Ron is inside helping with the stacking up of the goods
And all this has to be supervised....
So John volunteers for that job!
When the lorry is unloaded, a cup of tea is called for because all that hard work is thirsty work!
Well done lads!
