We finally had to say farewell to our position as Secretary of the Weybourne Road Allotment Holders Associaton. We have both enjoyed our time serving with various committee members, but sadly due to other demands on our time we find it began to be a little bit too much to fit in.
One of the fondest memories I will always have is of earlier days when we first set the committee up. Several of our erstwhile committee members got involved with Sheringham carnival and we actually went on the carnival procession in fancy dress. Unrepeatable halcyon days that will live for a long time in our memories. A couple of the local traders in town had generously donated quite a lot of fruit, enough to fill a wheelbarrow, which we pushed along with the procession, handing out oranges and bananas to the local children. We were all dressed as scruffy as possible in our old garden clothes carrying an assortment of allotment garden tools. Dorothy our wonderful social secretary actually came dressed as a sunflower.
We also ran a stall on the Carnival weekend on Sheringham promenade where we were selling home produced allotment vegetables to raise funds for the association.
