A reminder to all allotment tenants. if anyone does not wish to continue with their allotment from 1st April 2018, the deadline for advising the office is this Wednesday 31st January. This enables us to re-let plots in good time for the start of the growing season. if we do not receive notice of termination by this date, tenants will be invoiced for the full year starting on 1st April.
