August News from the VPA

We are now well into summer and I hope you are all reaping the rewards of your labours in the garden or allotment with abundant supplies of fruit, flowers and vegetables.   The summer has certainly meant plenty of watering and my arms feel 2” longer carrying watering cans on my allotments, but it has been worth it – my sweetcorns are delicious!!

Well, the next VPA event will be in the autumn – it’s our Annual General Meeting on Wednesday 6th November in the Vale Room of Blewbury Village Hall, 7.00pm for 7.30. The Didcot and District Woodturners Club will be giving a demonstration of the wonderful things they can do with a lump of wood. We would be very pleased to see as many of you as possible so that we can tell you first hand the future plans the Committee has for the Village Produce Association.

Don’t forget to put Saturday 7th December in your diary – its our Annual Social at Upton Village Hall. It is a very popular event and hopefully this year will be no exception. There will be a few surprises in store plus the usual tasty food.

More details of these events will be in the next issue of the Upton News.

Happy Gardening
