Sad news, we must report that Gwen Osborne (pictured second from the right in 2010) died recently, a former winner of the 60-70 age group in the Oxford Allotments Competition, she was a much respected and friendly member of the allotments and will be very much missed by us all.

Tuesday, 2 September 2014

The result of the last committee meeting, was that the decision was taken to replace the communal shed. This will be done in stages, the first being clearing out of personal belongings. Then demolition, panels will be available for anyone wishing to build a chicken house or compost container. Finally the new shed will be built by a contractor.

Hence please take home all your personal items by Xmas (25/12/14)

Thank you
These golden sunrise tomatoes make a good colour contrast with beetroot and lettuce hearts, all grown on my allotment.
