NEWSLETTER - JANUARY 2016

Firstly HAPPY NEW YEAR to all our members.


Lets all look forward to great year on the allotment !!!
ASHFORD ALLOTMENT SOCIETY DRAFT CONSTITUTION
Last year we agreed to revise the Allotment Society Constitution by bringing it up-to-date
and consolidating the various versions which had been in circulation over the years. This
work has now been done and the new Draft Constitution is now available by e-mail on
request from ashfordseedshed@gmail.com for you to look through before its discussed at
the AGM in January.
ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING
The Annual General Meeting will be held on Wednesday 27th January. Precise details of
time and venue will follow. All members are welcome to attend.
ALLOTMENT TRADING STORE
The Allotment Trading Store had a great year in 2015 and all members are welcome to
come along and join the scheme to take advantage of the generous discount we can offer

range of seeds. Saturday opening times for 2016 below.
HELP !!!!!
The Trading store would like to hear from any member who could offer an hour or two
once or twice a year on a Saturday opening date to lend a hand and assist our customers.
