Summer 'Social Gathering'

June 2022 Social GatheringDespite the peak holiday season, about 40 members of the Sarisbury Green allotment site attended the afternoon informal summer social gathering at the Sarisbury Green cricket club on Sunday 26th June.  With the club's bi-fold doors open onto the patio on a warm sunny afternoon, those attending enjoyed a drink and social chat with other members exchanging gardening ideas and giving feedback to managers on site progress.  This is the third organised event coinciding with 'the seasons' and it is hoped to organise a further one in the autumn.

Marketing the WWAA at Sarisbury 'Show on the Green'

Show on the green 2022 resizedOn Saturday 11th June 2022, the opportunity to market a limited number of vacancies at WWAA sites was taken when Robin Green, the Sarisbury Green Site Manager attended the Sarisbury 'Show on the Green'.   Some 2,000 local people attended the show on a sunny, warm and windy afternoon and many took the opportunity to chat to Robin about allotment keeping and collect a booklet about the forthcoming Sarisbury Green Horticultural Society Show on 13th August. 

Sarisbury Allotment Site Projects - September 2021 (2):

One of the Sarisbury Allotment Site projects is the tidying up and planting of a large corner area of the allotment site adjacent to Barnes Lane. It can’t be used as an allotment space because it is too dark and surrounded by protected oak trees.  Because of the trees, the ground conditions are too dry to grow vegetables and natural light is limited.

In 2018, the area was cleared of mountains of rubbish by CPBS operatives and the site was levelled at no cost to the WWAA by Mr Ben Spraggon of Warsash using his mini digger.

Ben’s excellent work left us with a 'blank canvas' of almost a quarter of an acre and it was decided that the area should be developed as a wild flower meadow area to encourage wildlife for environmental purposes and a leisure area for plot holders and others to enjoy.

Liz WoodSite Managers Martin and Robin are extremely grateful to Liz Wood, Plot 28a at Sarisbury who is using all her enthusiasm, skills, expertise and experience by leading on the development of the area by planting flowers and shrubs on the borders.

For that purpose, Liz is growing seeds and propagating cuttings at home as well as purchasing cost effective plants.  She has already made a huge difference with her hard work.

This is a project which requires substantial work. Anyone wishing to give a few hours of their time to support Liz should contact her on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. so that she can co-ordinate the work.

Sarisbury Allotment Site Projects - September 2021 (1):

Amongst the current projects being carried out at the Sarisbury Green allotment site is the renovation of the ‘equipment container’ situated at the north end of the site. Purchased many years ago, the container was showing signs of age.

This year, joint site manager Martin Wheeler has single-handedly cleared the rubbish surrounding the rear of the container, digging through tons of soil and removing buried lorry tyres. As part of the work, it was necessary to ‘underpin’ the right side to prevent the two ton container sinking in soft soil using ‘levers’ and manpower.It is now sitting squarely on the ground. Finally, and using his knowledge, skills and carpentry expertise, Martin stripped the existing leaking roof surface and replaced it with new roof metal panels. Later this autumn, it is hoped that managers will clean the exterior panels and paint the surface to prevent rusting.

The work thus far reflects great credit on Martin and has greatly improved the overall appearance of the area.

Sarisbury Green school win more awards - July 2019:

Sarisbury Green school children plot holders 'swept the board of prizes and cups' at the Curdridge Annual Horticultural Show on Saturday 13th July, winning over 20 awards. Quite remarkable that a Sarisbury Green nine year old child beat all the opposition with his cut flower dahlias to the consternation of experienced growers!

Robin Green, Allotment Road Site Manager says: "I am very proud of the children producing such marvellous results and it reflects great credit on the WWAA for supporting them. Well done all".

The photos below reflect the awards which include three cups awarded to the schoolchildren for products grown on their plot 32A at Allotment Road.  The photos have been kindly forwarded by Maria Kimble. 


Dig for Victory:

Dig for VictoryThe children at Sarisbury Church of England School held an event on their allotment plot on 10th December to learn about allotment keeping in 1942, during World War 2 - temporarily turning their poly tunnel into an Anderson shelter. They learned about the Dig for Victory campaign and what it meant to grow extra fruit and vegetables for the war effort.  An excellent educational opportunity for them as well as a lot of fun.  If you are interested, This email address is being protected from spambots.

Warsash Village Garden Show 2018:

IMG 9717Allotment Road plotholder, Abigail Harrison, pictured, won St. Mary's Church Reverend Nicky-Sue's Favourite Exhibit at the recent Warsash Village Garden Show.  Abigail also won Best in Show for her beautiful dahlias. Both Abigail and Robin Green, Site Manager, manned a stall for the Western Wards Allotment Association.  

This was a very well attended event and a large collection of exhibits displayed including flowers, vegetables, cakes and baking, photographic and hand made exhibits.  Exhibits were submitted by the Horticultural Society members, Warsash Allotment members and Sarisbury Allotment members. 

Of the exhibits submitted by Sarisbury Allotment Site for the first year at this show, Abigail 31B won a first prize and the Cup for 'Best In Show' for her Dahlia's exhibit.  In vegetable categories, Pam Barber 34B won 2 x 1st prizes and 2 x 2nd prizes, the Sarisbury Junior School 32A won 2 x 1st prizes and 2 x Highly Commended and Robin Green 32B won 1 x 2nd prize and 2 x Highly Commended. 

You can see more photos from the Show on the Warsash Horticultural Society website

Robin also reported: "You will also be pleased to note that some Sarisbury Allotment Plot holders submitted entries at the Sarisbury Horticultural Society Annual Show on 11th August and walked away with a number of 1st prizes.  The prize winners notably include the Junior School (again!) who achieved 4 x 1st Prizes and 1 x 2nd prize for vegetables.  An excellent achievement to add to their 1st prize at the Curdridge Show.  They really are showing the way forward with their produce despite having been established for such a short time.  It was subject of a lot of local positive comment.  In addition, John and Pam Barber (Plots 34/35B) won a 1st Prize for their 'cabbages' entry and Lucy Swanbrook (Plot 6B) won the Cup for best garden display".

STOP PRESS: We have just heard that Sarisbury Junior School have been awarded a Silver prize in this year's Fareham in Bloom competition.  Well done to you all and hope you will go for Gold in 2019!

Abigail has also started up a Facebook Page for Allotment Road growers so have a look to see what other plotholders are growing.

Here are some photos of Allotment Road entries at the Warsash Village Garden Show - 8th September 2018.
