July 20th, the Monday after the Summer Show, is the day of the big meeting. Do not miss this! The Working Group have been hard at it developing bright new ideas to improve the allotments and fighting to keep rents rises to an absolute minimum. The Working Group has ordinary plotholders like you on it as well as experts from the NSALG, council people with good ideas from other departments and allotment reps. This meeting is your chance to hear those ideas and give your opinion.
The meeting has been called by the council and will be chaired by Julie Rogers, who is the head of Environment and Customer Services, and has been chairing the Working Party.
Julie has booked the main council chamber with bags of room, and everyone will have a chance to speak.
From what I have heard so far I hope you will be pleasantly surprised and impressed. After this meeting, proposals will be finalised to put to the Cabinet of the council, so don't miss your chance.
The Open Meeting is at the Civic Centre at 6.15pm on Monday 20th July.
It is open to all allotmenteers so if you usually cultivate your allotment with a family member, they should come along them even if their name isn't actually on the paperwork.
