Hixon Allotments Association
Dear Plot Holder
We are going to be holding a plant sale at the site on Saturday 22nd May with all money raised being used for improvements to the site.
The sale will start at 11.00am for plot holders, before we open it up to others from the village at 11.30. Please feel free to let anyone who might be interested know and they will be also be very welcome to come and have a look around.
There will be a variety of plants for sale at reasonable prices and if you have any spare plants or seedlings, donations would be greatly appreciated.
We also have some second hand tools and books for sale and there will be a cakes, jams and chutneys stall too and again any donations would be very welcome.
As parking is limited,
it would be good if those who can walk to the site do so, otherwise Egg
Lane might become very congested.
We're having a quiz quiz on Sunday 27th January, which will be held in the Bank House and will start at 7.30pm.
V.E. Day Commemorations.
Like many villages, Hixon had a great little event organised, on the Millenium Green, in memory of V.E. Day all those years ago. There were several military vehicles along with lots of Camouflage Netting, many Cadets and lots of local historical documentation as well as a few other attractions including a "Plant Stall." This was of course organised and run by our "Allotmenteers" and many thanks must go to everybody who helped, both on the day and those who provided the wide range of plants to sell. After a donation to the M.G.T. (Millennium Green Trust) we raised £68.20 from the stall.
A few days later the remaining plants were taken to another local event to help them raise funds and then finally those plants still left were placed on the allotments for people to help themselves to with a little request that a small donation be left, at the Allotment's Secretary's house, to go to the funds. (Several additional pounds have been added to the tally in the last few days.)
