Forthcoming events - Open Days and boot sale in August

Nairn Allotment Society have a busy programme of events in August starting with their open day at Sandown on Sunday the 7th. There will be the usual range of stalls and tea/coffee available.

On Sunday 14th the event will be repeated down at the new allotments in Mill Road. Both events run from midday to four o’ clock. Your chance to see the new site and perhaps pick up a few gardening tips. Perhaps you would like to help the Society in its campaign to get more allotments in Nairn or would even like a plot yourself. If so please come along for a chat with the membership at either of the open days.

Then on Sunday the 21st the Society will be holding a car boot sale at the Maggot Car Park. A chance there to sell a few spare items for cash. A pitch for your car will cost £5 but no traders please. Again the event will run from 12.00 - 16.00.

The allotment society look forward to seeing you at the 3 August events. For further details or to book a space at the boot sale contact
