Note from the chairman

Welcome one and all to our 2017 growing year and let’s hope the weather will be kind and we can look forward to a flourishing harvest of vegetables and flowers and gardens to delight us all.

We have a small but very dedicated committee who organise the buying of the products, organise the annual Flower and Vegetable Show. The treasurer keeps her eye on the finances, admin and the general running of the store,plus arranging four outings per year.

This year we say a special goodbye to “Dick” after working at the store for many years and wish him good luck and good health in his retirement.

We are always looking to improve but our society desperately need new members and volunteers to help in the store. Can you or anyone help?

    Dear Alan

    I hope you don’t mind me contacting you. My name is Karen Harrison and i’m the Head of Peter Gladwin School in Portslade village. We are a small one form entry school with 7 teachers. We have beautiful grounds and since becoming Head i’ve restarted the garden , installed bee hives, the children have planted a huge wild flower bank and I’ve had a small sensory garden planted. We believe outdoor learning and experiences are so important.

    Over the last 3 years we have also built up links with our local community which includes working with John shepherd Easthill park, Emmaus, a Care home and local people.

    I was wondering if you had any local volunteers who could help us grow some vegetables with the children. We would then cook the vegetables with the children. If you knew of anyone or a number of people who could come and work with the children would you mind emailing me back. I would need to arrange DBS for any new volunteers.My email is [email protected]

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Kind regards
