Various opinions were voiced over what standard of cultivation a plot should keep to. How much was the weather to blame and personal medical problems. It was agreed that everyone should try harder this year to improve their plots.
Enquiry was made whether the residents of Bartholomew Road properties had priority, if the plot at the bottom of their garden became available. The secretary advised this was not so, as the waiting list which had been running for some years was the priority source for the letting of plots
