Community & Events

The times they are a-changing – and so is the shop!

We’ve been talking about it and now we’ve done it!

You will notice changes to the shop when it re-opens on 27th January 2019. The ‘Big Green Shed’ has been transformed into a shop area and a communal area. The shop area will be open for purchases at set times as always but the other half – our ‘communal area’ - will be accessible at any time to members. Once the refurbishment is completed the locks will be changed so that you can access the communal area with your gate key – this means you can make a cup of tea or coffee, use the microwave, access our library, have an impromptu get together or just shelter from the rain.newshopfeb19

It seemed a shame that the use of the Big Green Shed was limited and the questionnaire you completed last year told us that additional facilities would be welcomed. We also hope to hold other events – perhaps (for example) talks for new Allotmenteers from the ‘old hands’, more regular coffee mornings and someone has even suggested a whisky tasting evening. The possibilities are endless!

So come and have a look when the shop is open.

Please come to the GRAND OPENING when the communal area is ready for general use – likely to be in MARCH 2019. Watch this space for details …………………………………….
