Table Top Sale Today

It was the table top sale this morning  from 10.00am – 1.00pm. Members of the Allotment association and partners that had been roped into helping out on the day, gathered early at one of the Allotment Association members house at 9.00am to fill our cars with electrical items, cloths, plants, cakes, books, children’s toys and bric-a-brac and drove off in convoy to the Scout Hut in Pocklington, where we setup our stalls.

Here are some photographs of setting up the Table Top Sale, and a few pictures with punters present.

A photographer from Pocklington Post, came to photograph the event and members of the association.

I think I can safely say, “a fun time was had by all!” I look forward to the next fund raising event!

I don’t have the final amount raised, but as soon as I know, I’ll post it here.

Before ground works start on the 6 April 2010 (thinking positive!), I thought it was about time to publish some current photographs of how Gravel Pit Field looks after the snow has melted, leaving a water logged pond!

Gravel Pit Association presented a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation to the Yapham cum Meltonby Parish Council this evening.

The Chairman of Yapham cum Meltonby Parish Council, John Ackerley stated “in principal the Parish Council are in favour of turning Gravel Pit Field into Allotments”.

The Parish Council would like to see the plans for the Allotments, need to review the tenancy agreements, and Agreement between Association an Yapham cum Meltonby Parish Council, and understand what the Association will be delivering year by year.

We will return to the next Parish Council meeting on the 23rd February 2010, for the outcome.
