Hello all members,

We are now entering a very distressing time just after getting over the worst of Covid.
Our gardens and allotments will act as a way of getting away from the news for a few hours and now is the time to start getting busy with digging and planting

Trading Hut.

We are fully stocked in the Trading Hut but unfortunately with rising costs, our latest delivery of Clover has seen the price rise to £7 for a 75-litre bag.  We now have no stocks left at the old price. Sorry if you have reserved but missed out. There are plenty of seed potatoes available as well as white and red onions, shallots, peas, and broad beans.


There is still a long waiting list for allotments and no new people are being added at the moment.  During the severe winds, there has been a lot of plot holders equipment etc being blown off their own allotment on to others and beyond.  If you have found anything that is not yours or lost anything, please let us know and we will try and get things back to their owners.

The AGM is on the 15th of March at 7.30 in the small hall at St Pauls Centre.  Agenda and last year’s Minutes are available to download on the Web Site link  Members section code gphs2022. Please bring these with you if you are attending.
You must be a fully paid-up member to attend.

We have had a couple of  cancellations and there MAYBE now ONE OR POSSIBLY TWO tickets still available for this trip at £38 per person, on the 8th of May.  This includes a quiz on the coach, drink on arrival followed by a guided tour of the castle. Afterwards there is a ploughman’s lunch followed by a walk  through the village, visiting the beautiful church and the actual Chidding Stone.  Before leaving, we will have tea and cake.  There will be a waiting list once the last tickets are sold.
