Call for New Committee Members

Do you fancy getting more involved in the Scarcroft and District Allotment Associaton by joining our committee?

We are looking for new active members.  It is a lively, fun and active committee which is open to new ideas and input.  Meetings are held between 5 and 6 times a year on a Wednesday evening 7 - 9pm at the Golden Ball Pub. There is a break in the middle of proceedings to refill your glass.   It is our policy to share out the tasks, so new members would be expected to take on a role of their choosing (e.g. updating the membership list, promoting an event, volunteering to help at an event, taking the minutes, sending out the tweets, liaising with the police etc) .  Ideally new committee members would also be able to comit to helping out in the allotment shop, either by doing a shift over the weekend once a month or by helping with the bagging up on the occasional weekday daytime. 

Being a member of the committee is highly rewarding, whether you just do a stint of a couple of years, or become a long time member.  You will get to know what is going on across all our different alloment sites from a number of different perspectives, be able to get your own opinion heard and have an opportunity to develop or change what happens on the sites.  You will have the chance to get much more involved in your local community and have the pleasure of knowing that you are providing a service and events that help others enjoy and get involved with their local community too.

If you think you would like to get involved either put your name forward at the AGM or contact Graham on

If you think the committee is not for you but you would like to help out in the allotment shop 1 to 2 times a month you would also be very welcome.  You can put your name forward at the AGM or come into the shop or contact us on the email above.
