On 6 May a plant sale was held at the allotment. It looked like a summer fayre with the beautiful weather, a couple of tables and people buying veg plants kindly donated by various plot holders.
With the current conditions of lockdown some people were struggling to get plants for their plots, especially those already grown from seed, as gardens centre were closed. The weather made the event go really well, and a large number of allotmenteers purchased readily needed plants to put in.
Adam Clarke , from Clarkes farm, even stopped to purchase a number of tomato plants and with his tractor ticking over in the driveway, if you closed your eyes, it sounded a bit like a summer fayre with an ice-cream van.
Of course everyone kept to the social distancing rules. The total made for the society from the sale of the plants came to £94.55. Thanks to all who donated the plants, those who helped to make the event go ahead and all those who attended and bought the plants.
