Apple Pressing

Wondering if anyone has apples either being forgotten on trees or rotting on floor, than they didn’t mind donating to Cromford Apple Day. I’ll be there with the sister to the press in the below photo, happily making apple juice for all. On the same theme, if anyone in Parwich wants their own apples pressing into juice, just ask, Cheers Jon H

The Allotment Poll

A few weeks ago I ran a poll on here to coincide with  National Allotments Week

The poll attracted 30 responses (thank you all!) with 13 saying they would like to have an allotment in the village.

There were 2 comments that added some good information and ideas for thoses interested.

The Parish Council Clerk provided some valuable information for those interested in an allotment –

“If residents would like to rent an allotment they should write to the Parish Council. If six residents write to a Parish Council requesting provision of allotments the Council is required to formally assess the level of demand.”

Then this great suggestion came from Saskia T –

“I wondered whether a third option of a ‘Community Allotment’ should also be considered: i.e. a shared allotment that could be used by a group of residents who don’t have a veg plot and would share the produce. Other growers in the village could share excess seedlings and excess produce (especially runners beans and marrows…). And if there is enough space: a few fruit trees? Perhaps pie (or should that be ‘pumpkin’) in the sky? The suggestion originates from a visit to an amazing community allotment project in a small hamlet in Australia”

So in conclusion, anyone interested in allotments should write to the Parish Council.
