WWAA to host a stall at the Sarisbury Fete - Saturday 9th June
Western Wards Allotment Association will be represented at the Sarisbury Fete on Saturday 9th June. This is the third time the Association has manned a stall to showcase the merits of 'growing your own'. The event starts at 12 noon until 4pm. Sarisbury Fete is well subscribed to by members of the local community - there are some 90 stalls on the 'Green' during the afternoon, mostly charitable organisations like ours.
So come and join us and don't forget to bring a hat and a bottle of water as the weather promises to be hot. Bring your camera too so that you can take photos to upload onto our website (images no larger than 1024 KB please). Images shown were taken at a similar marketing event in the Locks Heath Shopping Village.
And whilst we are on the subject of growing your own, check out the Sarisbury Junior School's Facebook page to see what the pupils are growing on their own plot at the Sarisbury Green Allotments.

WWAA New Tenancy Agreement
After much revision by the Committee and lengthy negotiations, our new Tenancy Agreement has finally been approved by FBC. Please familiarise yourselves with the document contents, particularly the rules that could affect our neighbours. Though members have not yet signed a copy of the new lease, we are bound to abide to the changes contained within as the lease has been signed by our Trustees. It has been agreed at committee, the new Tenancy Agreement will be distributed to you at rent renewal time and you will need to sign a copy in order to continue working your plots.
The new tenancy agreement is a fair outcome for both the members of the WWAA and our local communities. I am confident it will ensure a thriving allotment society for the 15 years the lease will run.
Kind regards, Bob Hughes Chairman.
