Dig Hadfield - Next meeting 25th November

Hi Readers,

Just a quick line to let you know that our next meeting (only our second) will be held at the New Lamp, Bankbottom, Hadfield at 7.30pm on Tuesday 25th November. Anyone who lives in the area that is interested in the subject of allotments and who wants to help us campaign for more of them is welcome to come along.

If you are new to this site here is a potted history of Dig Hadfield and what it is about. The newly formed group originated from a blogpost on the Tintwistle and Hadfield Residents Association own blog entitled Not A Lotta Allotments which attracted a lot of comment and interest.

Consequently it was raised as an Agenda item at the September meeting, which resulted in everyone who had expressed an interest being contacted for an inaugural meeting which happened in October. At the meeting the name Dig Hadfield was decided upon and the newly formed group decided to become an autonomous organisation with the aim of procuring allotments specifically in Hadfield, since all who attended lived in the village and Tintwistle itself actually has an oversupply of allotments.

At the meeting, it was decided to promote the group via a poster campaign and a press release. Ralph Bennett agreed to do the poster, that is reproduced below and which was distributed around local shops with a view to broadening the campaign and building our next meeting.

Since then, this site has been created so the e-mail address shown on the poster is no longer required as the group now have their own e-mail contact address which is which can always be found in the top right hand corner of this site. That, in a nutshell is the history, brief as it is of Dig Hadfield. We're a friendly bunch, so if you're interested in what we are about please feel free to come along to our next meeting, which once again is at: The New Lamp, Bankbottom, Hadfield, on Tuesday 25th November at 7.30pm.
