Annual General Meeting
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.

RHS Hyde Hall
Last year we had a visit to the RHS Garden at Hyde Hall near Chelmsford.
As part of the CAA’s affiliation to the RHS we are offered a trip each year to one of their gardens. We are likely choosing Hyde Hall again this year although details have not yet been confirmed. Further information will be sent through newsletter and social media.
Last year places were limited to 55 people and were allocated on a first come basis.
