Warsash Village Garden Show 2018:
This event was hosted by the Warsash Horticultural Society who would like to say a huge “thank you” to everyone who entered items, or supported them in other ways, by making the Village Garden Show a great success. Despite the unfavourable spring and summer weather conditions for growers this year, there were an impressive number of entries on the day, 240, which made for an interesting, and colourful, result overall. For more information visit the Warsash Horticultural Society website.
2018 Site Inspection:
The first inspection this year will be carried out by the Site Manager around 10th April. By then, if you have had your plot more than three months, it is exected that your plot will be at least 80% cultivated, that is dug over ready for planting or already planted. If, for some reason, you will not be able to achieve this please talk to Site Manager, Gill Rock - 01489 576628.
Plot holders should make sure their plot is numbered. The easy way is to paint the number on a large flower pot.
Notice of Site Meeting:
A meeting of all Warsash plot holders will be held on Sunday 4th October 2015 at 10.30 am in the turning circle to discuss various issues that have been raised by tenants, see below. Please note that there will be no available parking on that morning.
- Deer prevention
- Strawberry bags
- Volunteers for boundary maintenance, plot clearing, improving noticeboard, etc.
- Help for tenants when needed.
3 May: Results of the first Plot Inspections 2016
Gill Rock, site manager, reports: "When I inspected the site recently I was so pleased that nearly all plots were looking good; it was the best result I can remember. I know some tenants have been ill and unable to cultivate their allotments. I do hope they will soon be well enough to start enjoying their plot again. Three tenants will be receiving warnings and four plots are on my 'watch list'. I am expecially pleased to see how well the three new tenants on Gordon Knap's old plot (34) have done".
A little bit of nostalgia:
When the WWAA web site first saw light of day there was a page containing photographs of sheds on the Warsash site. They're back !
Some of the ones photographed in 2003 are still there, though leaning a little more. Some have gone on to the big allotment in the sky. Just click on a picture for a larger view - enjoy !
And talking of sheds:
Working together - an example of what can be achieved when our Site Manager wants a shed moved - what teamwork!
