Allotment News – Greenhouse goes up!

Great day at the allotment yesterday! Greenhouse frame jigsaw finally solved and erected thanks to our WI members and two ‘honorary members’, Richard and Mick!

The sun shone all day and a picnic lunch was enjoyed by everyone.

Monthly Meeting this Wednesday, 27th February 2019.

Our next monthly meeting is this Wednesday, 27th February when our speaker, Grainne, will be talking to us about ‘Love and Romance in Art’.    She will be showing us how to look more closely at famous paintings and explaining what the details can reveal.  Sounds intriguing!

A few other things to remember are:

  • Payment of your 2019 subs of £42 is due.
  • Payment of £28 is also due if you have put your name down to go and see ‘Menopause the Musical’ in Corby on Saturday, 15th June 2019.

Details of how to pay can be found on our website here .

Also, we will be having a sale of books and jigsaws at our March meeting.   If you have any books or jigsaws you wish to donate you can bring them along on Wednesday or in March.    Monies raised from sale of jigsaws will go to support the cost of the new greenhouse on our allotment and sale of books will go into our WI funds.

Hope to see you all on Wednesday.

MHWI Allotment Meeting 11th Feb

Whilst it may not be the most inviting weather to be pottering around on the allotment, behind the scenes the enthusiasm for planning the growing season to come is thriving!

Members met earlier this month (indoors!) to chat about what they would like to do with the allotment. We have decided to try out some unusual or untried varieties. Aubergines, corn and kohlrabi were mentioned. Craft club have been asked to help make a scarecrow! Hopefully our greenhouse will be glazed by March.

We are trying to get a bit extra allotment space, ideally the adjacent plot to the north of ours.

We would love to plan social events at the allotment, both for us and other WI members. Let us know if you have any ideas you’d like to share.

We plan to sell seedlings at the March garden themed meeting.

Our next meeting will be on Monday 11th February at 3pm. If you are interested in helping out with the allotment or would just like to pop down to see how its coming along, drop Anne an email anneclayton@outlook.com
