CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: We did one lovely GYO session on March 15th 2020, respecting social distancing, but due to the lockdown I then suspended sessions. For what it’s worth, in general I think that allotments are relatively safe for a small group respecting distancing, wearing masks and aware of shared surfaces such as tool handles. But regulations disallow gatherings so we cannot resume.
For 9 years I ran ‘Grow Your Own’ sessions on my plot. I really hope we can resume for another season later in 2021.
The sessions are ideal for novices but equally if you want to come and tell us what to do, that’s great too. Get stuck in as we sow, nurture, harvest and eat. And frankly I want your practical help because illness is slowing him down these days.
Come celebrate with the Trumpington Residents’ Association (TRA) the 10th anniversary of Trumpington Pavilion. There’ll be stalls, and family, crafts and sports activities.
12.00-16.00 on Saturday 21 September.
We’ll have a stall – we’d like your help. Please give spare vegetables, fruit, jams, chutneys etc, and small plants. Leave your donations at the plots, by the Trading Hut, by 11.30 Saturday morning (or you can bring directly to the Pavilion event).
We’d like volunteers to help us set up and run the stall. If you would like to help please email us: email@example.com.
We have Janet to thank for designing the society’s new logo which appears in the header above.
The design is officially a funky Trumpington pumpkin because it was inspired by the winning entry in the “Funky Vegetable” class at this year’s Cambridge Produce Show, which was grown at Foster Road allotments.
