The third AGM of B.I.A.S. will be held on Saturday 9 March 2013, 10.30 a.m. in the library at Greenbank High School, Hastings Road, Southport PR8 2LT.  All current

plot-holders who wish to join the society or renew their membership are invited. The invitation is also extended to anyone on the Birkdale Irrigation allotment waiting list who would like to join the society, and take advantage of society benefits such as a

discounted seed scheme, and the opportunity to meet a friendly group of gardeners with a wealth of horticultural experience.

It has been a very challenging year for allotment tenants throughout the country with the exceptional weather conditions, and on the Birkdale Irrigation site, plot-holders have had to cope with flooding on many plots, as well as a badly potholed access road which they are trying to repair themselves with road planings provided by the

Council.  Allotment holders are also having to brace themselves for more than a doubling in allotment fees as well as charges for water supply.

BIAS Chair, Paul Williamson said, “We are looking forward to meeting with current and prospective members in order to further the aims of the society”.
