Autumn Show

With no Autumn Show this year, we are thinking of having a virtual show instead, no judging or anything like that, just photos of exhibits that you may have entered. Send your pictures to webmaster@ldga.org.uk with a short description and we’ll put them on the website.

Surplus Produce

We have been asked by local resident Jenny Ellis to publicise the Letchworth Surplus Produce scheme that she is involved with. The scheme aims to encourage growers to donate their surplus harvest to the Letchworth Food Bank and BestB4 café initiatives. If you are able to make a donation then take it to Mrs Howard Memorial Hall, Norton Way South, Letchworth SG6 1NX at around 9:30am any Tuesday or Friday. Alternatively, leave it ready for collection at one of the following allotment sites:

  • Norton – 1pm any Thu or Sun
  • South View – 2pm any Thursday
  • Wilbury – 3pm any Thursday
  • Runnalow – 4pm any Thursday

Contact Jenny on 07505 131880 if you have any questions.
