Minutes of Meeting of Harris Road Allotment Society 20th March 2014
Present: Asha (Chair), Stewart, Vicky, Ben
Apologies: Melvyn, Peter
Minutes of the last meeting: Approved.
Matters arising: Stewart to order the outstanding items for completion of jobs on the next workday (mainly soil, sand, grass seed etc.). Sow seeds for a chamomile lawn area.
: Need to check with Ben about the status of the newsletter.
April workday: Would be to complete the raised beds by filling, relocate the front drop post, lay the grasscrete structure, fill with sand and sow grass seed.
Future workdays – could spend more time tending to individuals needs.
- July after bird nesting season, cut back privet hedges to a reasonable height as per tenants wishes.
RHS Grant: See above. Any extra money could be used for wildflower seeds.
Open day – May 17th. Members who are able can sow extra seeds to generate plants to sell. This may be able to occur in the front raised beds.
- Vicky is not able to run the proposed children’s activities (“grass heads”) but this is easy and cheap and would be a good idea if someone else could run it.
- Peter to contact the Council events team.
AGM is in May (17th). Thought should be given to who will replace Asha as Chair and whether anyone else wants to be a Committee member [Asha to look into the point of Committee members].
