All hands to the pump!

Sunday 1st February

A work-morning followed by lunch. If you are new and you want help with digging over your plot, please come up at 11 am. First come first served! If you are an old hand, please come and welcome new people and help them get started.

First Sunday Food-sharing Lunch at 1 pm.

Volunteering Days are also on the first Sunday of the month. If you know of anyone who would like to come and do some work at Bluebell, they are most welcome and can stay for the food-sharing lunch at 1 pm. They don’t need to bring a contribution.

Things to do this month.

Such as – prune autumn-fruiting raspberries to about four inches from the ground.

For other ideas, look on the website (password garlic), there is a calendar and much helpful advice based on gardening at Bluebell Allotments


 Also – people could get on with digging over their plots. It’s not that cold!


A warm welcome to new growers Vicky, Philippa, and Martha and Sandra. We are sure they will enjoy being in GO2 and we look forward to seeing them at food-sharing lunches and work days!
