  • 1. Allotment Competition Awards: The awards for last summer’s allotment competition were given out last night.  Mick and Joyce Cunningham, plot 44, won the prize for the best allotment in south Manchester.  P.J. Rowley, plot 71, won the prize for the best allotment in  Manchester! Congratulations to Mick and Joyce and P.J..  At the present time I do not know what the scores were on all of the other plots.  I was told last night that there will be another allotment competition this year.



2. Skip:  The Council has agreed to provide a skip over the weekend of the 23rd and 24th June.  This is a great opportunity for plot holders to remove large pieces of rubbish from their sites.

3. Barbeque:  Natalie Marshall has again kindly agreed to organise the allotment barbeque which will be held on Sunday 1st July. Food will be served from 13:00 until 15:00.  Guests are requested to contribute  a salad or sweet.  Wine and beer will be on sale while fruit juice and bottled water will be provided. There is no charge for the barbeque but donations will be gratefully accepted to help offset the cost to the society. Natalie would appreciate offers of assistance .
