Plots in demand!

Duxford is following the national trend at present with a much higher than normal demand for allotment plots.  The coronavirus lockdown has made the fresh air and productive exercise of bashing an allotment into shape even more attractive.  However turnover is usually quite steady and the council is considering the division of some larger plots so that more become available before long.  Priority may also be given to residents of Duxford parish

 

If you are interested in joining the waiting list, follow the link to the parish council's online form.

Zooming around

Like almost everyone at the moment, the Allotment Society is keeping in touch with Zoom.  We invested in a paid-for subscription so we can keep talking for longer, and it's working really well.  So far this year we've had online tutorials on pests and weeds (complete with quizes to check we were awake), and have had the first in a series of monthly "allotmenteers question time".  This is where our more experienced members are put on the spot to share know-how and help out newer members.  It works so much better with a glass of something in hand in the warm.

 

If you'd like to join in, watch out for the next Zoom invitation in your DAS email.  Not a member?  Why not join us!
