We had our third meeting of the allotment association this evening in the village hall kitchen, after members of the allotment association broke away from the Parish Council Meeting, after the Chairperson updated the Parish Council on our progress to date.

The Chairperson had produced the following Agenda for tonights meeting

Gravel Pit Allotment Association

AGENDA 26 May 2009

  1. Advertising/publicity - why, where, what are we trying to achieve. Offers of help, what to do with interested parties. Article for Pock. Post. Other locations.
  2. Format of meetings.
  3. Plans - Surveyor. Next steps.
  4. Furry friends! (rabbits)
  5. Constitution & Rules - examples to consider at a future date.
  6. Any other items.
  7. Date & time of next meeting.

I gave an update on the progress of the website. The allotment plans and schedule of works were discussed and we were all handed copies of example Constitution & Rules by the Chairperson to examine.

I think this was homework!

The rough plans were unveiled this evening, Gravel Pit field is approximately 75m x 49m. Plans will be uploaded shortly on the website.

Andrew Hancock, Managing Director, Cyrus Computer Consultants Ltd, an IT consultancy company within the parish of Yapham cum Meltonby, offered to administer and sponsor the associations website at no cost to the association, in return for a small logo, text link in the footer of the page. It was agreed by the members of the committe this was acceptable.

It was decided tonight to name the website gravelpitallotments.org.uk.

So Gravel Pit Allotments Association has a new permanent Internet home http://gravelpitallotments.org.uk/.

This will be the first time we get a chance to look at the plans provided by the Surveyor. Hopefully we will also have time to discuss an internet domain name, and this website can move to it’s final home website.
