A call out for Committee Members
We would like to take this opportunity to invite nominations for Committee members and officers. Belonging to the Committee is not as boring as it sounds! We have tea and biscuits at our meetings and chat about many issues affecting plot holders across the city. It's a social gathering as much as a meeting. We are keen to get new people on board so please get in touch if you have a little spare time to offer and would like to promote a vibrant food growing community that is committed to promoting sustainable growing, protecting the environment and encouraging open democracy and representation on all our sites.
We are especially in need of a secretary. The role would mainly involve taking minutes at about 6 meetings a year.
Please email us at if you would like to get onboard.
We look forward to seeing you.
Best Regards,
Mark Carroll, Publicity Officer for
BHAF Committee.
