Pencil it in…

Framfield Allotments Association committee meetings take place on the first Sunday of every month

Friday 31 July
Closing date for entries for our under-16s photography competition. We’d love to see lots of photographs taken by our children. There are two themes: an allotment view and nature on the allotments. There will be prizes for the best entries. Email entries to, along with the name and age of the entrant. No more than two entries per entrant in each category please.

Sunday 30 August
Closing date for scarecrow competition. Last year a really fine collection of scarecrows dropped in to visit Framfield and we would like to welcome more scarecrow visitors this year. We’re looking into the feasibility of holding another scarecrow-making workshop, but in the meantime there are quite a few useful videos on YouTube to look at. Some of our favourites last year were improvised from carrier bags.

We have a number of school visits planned – volunteers are always welcome to help out. Please contact Jane.
