As can be seen in the minutes of the latest meeting (held on 2nd March 2015) J Wallis has asked about the possibility of holding a small vegetable show on the site for plot-holders to participate in. This would be a small event with the focus on the fun and social aspect rather than competition. It would be a chance for plot-holders to socialise and show what they have achieved with your plots. Ideas put forward in the meeting included maybe combining it with a BBQ or some drinks. It would most likely be held sometime in July/August and be open for any society member to participate in.
Another idea was also put forward that plots could be judged with certificates being given for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. This would be on the basis of tidiness, what was being grown on the plot, how the plot was presented etc. It was suggested that it might add a fun incentive for plot-holders to smarten up their plots, with the chairman offering a silver cup for the winner!
If anyone would like to express an interest in these ideas, or if you have any comments or suggestions about them or any additional ideas of their own for society events, please leave a comment below!
