Brian Matthews 1933-2021
We are sad to hear that Brian Matthews, plot holder at Hunts Pond Road and previous Chairman of the WWAA, passed away on 5th July. Known by other plot holders as "hands on and hard working in his time as Chair", Brian gave up his allotment about two years ago, having been very involved for a long time. Details of his funeral are below, if people wish to pay their respects to Brian:

Update 2nd May - here's what they look like now.
Let us know if you are growing any unusual plants this year?
