River Trip: leaving HVH at 9.30am

Living in a flat or new-build home with no opportunity for a productive garden? Or perhaps you fancy extending the flower and vegetable growing potential of your current garden space? How about a little more self-sufficiency reminiscent of "The Good Life"?
If you find yourself answering 'yes' to any of these questions, then you will be pleased to hear that a number of allotments are available in Haddenham.
Now is the perfect time of the year to take an allotment — plant growth has slowed right down and there's an extended opportunity to get everything ready for planting in the Spring.
If you're new to gardening or vegetable growing, you'll get lots of helpful advice from fellow allotment holders. There's also a mine of information on the internet, of course. Here's just one example — but there are many, many more sources of help and advice out there.
Plots are very reasonably priced with a year's rent at £15.50 for 5 pole and £23 for 10 pole* Both sizes are available.
* An allotment is traditionally measured in rods (perches or poles), an old measurement dating back to Anglo-Saxon times. 10 poles is the accepted size of an allotment, the equivalent of 250 square metres or about the size of a doubles tennis court. 5 poles therefore, half a tennis court — but neither sizes are good for playing tennis on!
If you are interested, please contact Alison Watt, the Allotment Secretary, on 01844 292544 or email her at: firstname.lastname@example.org
