AGM 2010 - Wednesday 17th

The Annual General Meeting of the Scarcroft and District Allotment Association will be held this Wednesday, the 17th of March, in Room 2 (upstairs) at Southlands Methodist Church, Southlands Road at 7.30pm.  The room will be open from 7pm and the meeting will finish at 9pm.

The agenda is as follows:
  1. Welcome
  2. Apologies for absence
  3. Minutes of the AGM held on 18th March 2009
  4. Chair’s report
  5. Treasurer’s report
  6. Proposals for changes to the constitution
  7. Election of the committee
  8. A talk Herbs for Health by Laura Potts
Please note that Sarah Clark from Green Garden Herbs who was originally billed to do our talk cancelled this week, due to an invasion of rabbits at her nurseries (and bad weather) which has left her with no stock to sell or herbs to use as visual aids.  We are delighted that Laura Potts, a keen allotmenteer, Scarcroft plotholder for 25 years and author of 'A Small Herbal'  has agreed to step in and save the day.  You may wonder why we didn't ask Laura in the first place, well, I'm afraid I didn't know we had such an expert in our midst; otherwise I certainly would have asked her.  Laura recently did a demonstration on pruning soft fruit which was highly praised by those who attended it (see the post from Wed 3rd Feb 2010, you can find it by using the Blog archive on the right hand side).
Laura's short talk will be entitled Herbs for Health - using herbs at home and in the garden.  It will bring to us the tastes of fresh herb teas, the scents of last year's crops and tips on cultivation and uses.  There will be copies of Laura's booklet available to purchase on the night if anyone would like to do so.
Her talk promises to be an interesting and informative event.

We expect a member of the local police team to be available to talk to members before the meeting starts, so use this opportunity to raise any issues you have with them.

There is usually a group of members who go for a drink at the Swan on Bishopthorpe Road after the meeting.  All members are welcome to join us.

Please note that if you have not renewed your annual subscription you can do so on the night but please come slightly early so we can sort out the paperwork before the meeting starts.

See you there.
