You are warmly invited to attend the Annual General Meeting of the newly-formed Harpole Allotment Association.
The association has been formed as an independent body to represent and protect the interests of the allotment holders to promote "Growing your Own" within the village and surrounding areas, and to improve maintenance and provision of facilities at the allotments.
Membership of the association is entirely voluntary, and subscriptions are £2.25 per year, which will then be passed on as affiliation fees to The National Allotment Association. This represents considerable saving on the individual cost of membership.
For more information please contact Rita Gibbins 01604 831289
