Risk assessment for reopening of Trading Store following Covid-19 lockdown:Risk assessment for Reopening of the Trading Store at Westrees
Potato Orders for 2020
Please note: Due to the fact that Geoff who used to deal with the orders is no longer with the trading store, we have decided to place a repeated order for the potatoes & onions that were purchased last year.
This means that there will be NO ORDER FORM AVAILABLE for 2020 but instead potatoes etc will be available from the trading store as of the 2nd Saturday in February 2020 on a first-come, first-served basis!
This method will also reduce the amount of wastage we get from leftover stock.
What is the trading store?
The trading store is a bulk buying cooperative store for allotment holders and members of the general public. You can purchase a huge range of gardening supplies as well as ordering seeds plus seed potatoes for you. Save money on everything you need for your gardening.
There is an annual fee of £4 for belonging to the bulk buying scheme. This is because it has to operate as a co-operative ‘club’. However, the seed shed is open to all local gardeners, not just those with allotments.
Where is the trading store?
The trading store is located in the car park of Westrees Allotment site on Quantock Drive.
Please arrive in good time to ensure being able to get everything you want. The Trading Store is run by volunteers and at busy times there may be a queue.
Please note: if the weather is really foul and the Trading Store likely to be very quiet, please make sure you are there well before 1pm, as Geoff will want to pack up early.
