Tonight I hied myself away to the AGM for the allotment society. Quite a turnout, about 40-50 people all very enthusiastic about all sorts of things. It sounded like the society had been having issues with enthusiasm and input but since the new allotments created by Sustainable Merton were added there’s new blood and a bit of reinvigoration all around.
Lots of exciting sounding things coming up, including a possibility of going self-managed over the next 12-18 months. There was cake, coffee and the election of officers. Chat about the future and plans for next year, and seed catalogues from Kings Seeds to look at and see whether we want to put a collective order in (for a substantial discount).
May have thrown my hat in the ring at the end to have a look at the soc’s communications and make some suggestions.
