It is time once more to hold our AGM. We need to make sure we have a properly elected committee to represent the site with the Council and to manage FLAG on our members’ behalf.

Currently the FLAG committee is:
  • Bob Grover, acting chair and secretary,
  • Anne MacDonald, site representative,
  • Richard Cloutman, treasurer and membership secretary.
Other important roles that need to be filled to make our site run smoothly include;
  • NSALG link person (National Society of Allotment and Leisure Gardeners).
  • Newsletter Secretary
  • Spokesperson/Liaison/publicity with the Council and the police
  • Deputy Site Stewards
  • Site and facilities operativeOrganise repair and maintenance of shared machinery, Keep records of machinery loaned and returned
  • Social secretary
  • Web site/social media secretary
  • Clubhouse Coordinator
So come to the AGM and get involved.
FLAG membership buys you annual third-party insurance cover, membership of NSALG and its ‘cheap seeds’ scheme plus the chance to use FLAG’s power tools (mower, strimmer etc) as well as a share of manure and leaf deliveries.

63 plot-holders are currently fully paid-up members of FLAG. We would like all plot-holders to join to ensure the council listens to our concerns.

We look forward to seeing you at our AGM.

Kings Seeds catalogues are still available in the clubhouse, take one and send your order in now using the green form placed in each catalogue.

All Flag members are automatically members of NAS https://www.nsalg.org.uk/ so you can benefit from cheaper seeds via Kings.
We’ve taken delivery of several piles of leaves.

Please put any stones removed from your plot onto the main path/driveway, it gets very slippery in Winter!

Remember to throw all green waste to the back of the pile as rubbish is spilling back onto the pathway again.

Better still, compost your waste at one end of your plot.

Please email FLAG at flagmail@btinternet.com if you have any news items you would like to post on this site.
