Just an update for everyone. Prior to the coronavirus crisis we had planned a full range of communal activities in the Garden, beginning with a Spring seedling and produce swap day following the very successful event last year. This was to have been held in May. Obviously this cannot take place now because of social distancing. But the virus and necessary precautions shouldn't altogether spoil the good community spirit we have built up here at America Lane. We can perhaps set up a table in the Community Garden where plotholders can leave their surplus seedlings and collect from others.
The second event planned was the BBQ, and we had scheduled this for 19 July. From the latest medical advice at press conferences this too looks unlikely, but if things change we will notify everyone. Finally we still have hopes of holding our Autumn Festival and the date for this is Sunday 25 October. Let's all look forward to the days when we can share and be sociable again.
