Pitstone Volunteer of the Year

We are proud to note that our very own committee member and plot holder Geoff Bratt has won the Pitstone Parish Council Volunteer of the Year award for the huge number of hours volunteered as a Community First Responder for the village; putting his own personal safety at risk whilst helping others during the COVID pandemic. We have all noted the long hours Geoff has remained on call to assist others in the worst of times; and this recognition is well deserved. Many congratulations Geoff, and well done. Thank you from us all.

Dagnall Hut Update

After being shut for a majority of this season due to COVID restrictions, it was great to get an update from the Dagnall shop today:

 “We have almost completed our alterations and refit, we have had some delays with the card machine. We have made Dagnall Gardeners’ Society shop Covid 19 safe for the members and the volunteers.
Keeping social distancing is going to change the way the hut works. Next week we are testing out our new procedures to make sure that it works as we have planned.
Then we are planning to have 2-3 compost days when we will sell compost only the shop will not be open. This we hope, when the shop does reopen it will allow members to shop quicker.
If everything goes ok we plan to reopen in 2 weeks’ time.
I will inform you of the dates as soon as it has been sorted
 
Look out for other news letters in the next couple of weeks there is a lot to say. The first one will the 2021 potato order form
