GPHS & Covid-19 Policy

IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING THE TRADING HUT DURING THE CORONAVIRUS CRISIS

At an extra-ordinary Committee Meeting, it was unanimously agreed to keep the Trading Hut open for the time being, unless government regulations tell us differently or we are unable to man the hut as a result of a lack of volunteers.

We ask you to please abide by the following:

WASH YOUR HANDS BEFORE ENTERING THE TRADING HUT EVERY TIME.
(THE TOILETS WILL BE LEFT OPEN DURING TRADING HOURS)

ONLY ONE CUSTOMER AT A TIME AND PLEASE KEEP AT LEAST A METRE BETWEEN PEOPLE

PLEASE DO NOT COME TO THE TRADING HUT IF YOU ARE SHOWING ANY  SIGNS OF COUGH, COLD OR FEVER – THANK YOU

The refreshment area will be outside unless it is raining and anti-virus wipes will be used to keep everything clean. The counter, scales and other areas will be cleaned with anti-virus wipes after every customer.

Please also note:

  1. Onions are sold out but we still have a few Duke of York, Kestrel and Desiree Potatoes
  2. You can pay your subscriptions at the Trading Hut, if you still have not done so.

Thank you so much from all the Committee for your understanding during this difficult time.

Secretary

Trading Hut – re-opens 9th February

Refreshments will be available

Happy New Year to all our members.

It has been a mild winter but very wet and difficult for all those with gardens and/or allotments. Let us hope that 2020 will be a good growing year for all.

When planning your planting, please note that we will be selling four types of potatoes in the Trading Hut:
Red Duke of York
Desiree
Kestrel
Charlotte (salad)
All of the above will be at the same price as last year – £1.40 Kilo

We will also have onion sets, Turbo and Stuttgarter at £2.50 Kilo
and Red Baron at £2.80 Kilo.  

These will hopefully be available when the Trading hut re-opens on 9th February.

This year the composts will remain at the same price as last year:
Humax £6 bag
Peat Free £6 bag
And Clover £4.40 bag

We have all the usual fertilizers, canes, tomato feed, rose feed, slug pellets, weed control, ant powder, labels, strings, fleece, netting, hoops and other sundries available at favourable prices.

We look forward to seeing you at the Trading Hut at Cheyne Walk Allotments between 10 and 12 o’clock Saturdays and Sundays and occasional other times.

2019 Christmas Lunch

Another very successful Christmas Lunch for the GPHS.

This year’s Christmas lunch had the largest attendance so far, including our oldest member, Don Grammar, aged 93

As usual the food was fantastic and during and after the lunch, there was live music with plenty of audience participation. The surprise was a Moroccan Dancer, who accompanied the live music. Everyone enjoyed her beautiful dancing and a few members were encouraged to join in.

The afternoon ended at 4 o’clock with many members not wanting to leave. Another very successful Christmas Lunch for the GPHS.

Seasons Greetings to all Members and a Happy and Healthy 2020.
