Looking back to last years AGM ahead of the upcoming one. Frustratingly I didn’t charge my camera so they were taken on my phone and aren’t as clear as I would like. Good turnout, slightly down from the previous year, we hope to have good attendance this year too. Each year as a requirement of being an Association we hold a meeting to elect new or re-elect existing Committee members. Important topics relating to Allotments and the Association, and news about this years upcoming events are also discussed. There is a break usually part way through or at the end for free refreshment. It can also be a great way to meet and talk to other members or raise issues of concern or ideas about how the Association can improve. There is no bar to entry for Committee members, as long as you have passion, some free time, and useful skills to add. #allotmentuk #allotmentlife #spring #garden #gardening #CAA #colchesterallotments #colchester #allotments #allotment See MoreSee Less

Last but not least is the Best Carved Pumpkin category. It’s heart-warming to have gardeners of all ages take part in our events and we hope to see even more of you at events and competitions throughout this year. #growyourownfood #pumpkin #homegrown #vegetablegarden #allotmentuk #producecompetition #vegpatch #colchester #colchesterallotments #allotment #allotments #CAA #essex #growyourown #vegetables #garden #gardening #pumpkins #pumpkincompetition #allotmentlife See MoreSee Less

Flashback ⏳ to October when we held the Pumpkin Competition and one of our new categories was Tastiest Pumpkin Pie🥧. Amazing efforts from members of the CAA which can be seen here and were rewarded with certificates. Bonus pictures of our chairperson Addrian sampling the pies, he does the hard work so we don’t have to. CAA member and 🥇 first prize winner also brought along some pumpkin cake for everyone to sample. #pumpkincompetition #pumpkin #growyourownfood #vegetablegarden #allotmentuk #vegpatch #producecompetition #pumpkins #allotmentlife #gardening #garden #vegetables #homegrown #growyourown #essex #CAA #allotment #allotments #colchester #colchesterallotments See MoreSee Less
