Next Site Meeting Sunday 19th September
10:30 in the Clubhouse -All welcome.
  
There will be a vote on continuing being apart of North Walsall  Allotments Association or to go self managed.

By continuing being apart of NWAA will mean all rents collected will
go to NWAA to be used as the NWAA wishes.
By going self managed all rents collected will stay with Grenfell Road
Allotments to spend on our site alone.
It will create more administration for Grenfell Road Committee-paying our own
insurance and water, but plot holders will see little difference in the
day to day running.

If plot holders do not attend the meeting their vote will be accepted as wishing to go self managed.


Alan says "It was a pleasure to welcome MP Eddie Hughes, Councillors Gary Flint, Corin Statham and Amanda Spratt (Crowd fund Walsall Programme Manager) to our site at Grenfell Road Allotments. Weather not great but it was a great visit. Thank you all"

The first site meeting in the new room, still awaiting the finishing touches.

Kate Fromings is conducting a
National Allotments Survey and she kindly emailed to say "After reading through your website I am really impressed at the user-friendly layout, and I especially liked the insect photos from Alison, and the 'growing help' charts (which not many allotment websites have!)"


Due to circumstances last site meeting for 2018 was on SATURDAY 22nd September at 10:30 in the container where the Chairman presented his report. It was also the AGM and officers of the site were elected. For full details click on the link below.
 
 
The Chairman's Report for 2018
 

Following the torrential rain of the 26/27th of June the site got extensively flooded but the water didn't go down afterwards like it usually does. The reason can be see below, there's a lot of water to leak out of the canal into the stream that flows through Grenfell!
UPDATE The culvert has now been repaired.

The Canal

 
A grant application has gone in to WHG to transform the area behind the car park into a communal area for plot holders and to be a place for community days. Fingers crossed.

The site tidy up on Sundays from 10:30 is dependent on the weather.
 

Narrow miss for Debbie, Tim and Jackie
(and Anthony's plot) when the wind blew!
