September 2019 Committee Meeting Minutes
The Minutes of the September 2019 Committee Meeting have now been published.
Reminder from the Chairman regarding the use of hosepipes
Tenants have signed up to the Tenancy Agreement and are reminded of Rule 6.2 as follows:
'Hosepipes are not permitted for direct watering of plants nor the use of any attachments or sprinklers. Only watering cans/receptacles should be filled from a tap or water butt. Anyone found to be using hosepipes directly, and if there is sufficient evidence, will be put on notice'.
Water is one of our major costs and misuse, without control, risks the Association's ability to adequately maintain our Sites.

Sarisbury Green schoolchildren sweep the board with awards
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.
