Soup Sunday cancelled
Owing to a major water leak, the entire water system at the Weald has been turned off. As a result, we can’t hold the Soup Sunday on 2 January. We’ll keep you posted on progress!
January 2 – Soup Sunday!
Please join us at 13:00 on Sunday 2 January for a hearty red lentil and vegetable soup. If your New Year’s Resolution is to eat better or get more exercise we can help with both: a pleasant walk around the allotment, followed by a hearty soup!
Community fridge 23 Dec
We’ve been given a LOT of potatoes, so if you’re looking to stock up on everybody’s favourite tuber, please bring an extra big bag on Thursday!
