SOCIAL NOTICE


Lists are now available in the Clubhouse for volunteers for weekend making of coffees and teas at Eddington. We do need others to be involved to keep this going so please help with an hour of your time,  it would be much appreciated.

The Tuesday afternoon ART club is resuming from 20th July.

Session is 2 - 4 pm  All media and abilities welcomed.  This is not a teaching class. It’s rather a helping hand and an enjoyable time to share ideas and spend time encouraging each other.  Plus a cuppa and cake. No formality, £1 a session...come when you can.

Potato Ordering Stage 1

Each summer the Shop receives a list of some 35 potato varieties which we can obtain at a very reasonable price. We cannot stock all of these so we have to decide which to choose and how many to obtain. We usually stock around 15 popular varieties but we can add to that list if there is a demand. So you have the opportunity to ask us to obtain other varieties which you would like to grow. If you would like to us to order particular varieties from the list which we would not usually stock then you need to let us know at least by the end of August - but the earlier the better.

You can see the list for the current year here : Potatoes for 2022

Descriptions of most of the varieties we usually stock can be seen here : Stock Potatoes

More information about varieties can be found on-line.

You may wish to place an early order of whatever you want - whether or not they are included in our usual stock - just to ensure that we reserve them for you and that we order sufficient numbers. You are welcome to do so.

At this stage - place your order by just contacting us by email or by visiting the Shop.

Potato Ordering Stage 2

Once our Shop order has been placed and confirmed then we will know which varieties we intend to stock and you will not be able to add further varieties. They will be delivered in January.

You can continue to place orders with us until we sell out of our stock - but only from the varieties we have obtained. At this stage you can, of course, purchase other varieties of seed potatoes from our seed catalogues or elsewhere - but most probably at a higher price.

Our variety list will have been changed to show our potato stock .

At this stage you can use the ordinary ordering system to place your order - you will be ordering from the Shop stock.


SHOP NOTICE

Our Shop is open every Saturday morning (9.00 to 12.00). We are continuing to ask members to follow general COVID guidance - 2m distancing and a mask when inside. We also ask you to continue the prior ordering approach if possible - we are more flexible now but you may experience a delay if you fail to order netting or other items needing preparation.

You can download a stock list for ordering seeds from our Shop stock here
