We are a very diverse group ranging from those with a small vegetable plot to full blown smallholding and any number of levels of self-sufficiency. It doesn't matter if you are just giving your first thoughts to growing your own vegetables in your garden or allotment or perhaps thinking of having a few hens, LSSSC is the place to come for help, advice and support. We believe in what we do and want to encourage others to look toward a healthy, sustainable way of living, but we are not against having a good time either.
Most of our meetings involve a communal lunch table, where there is always something delicious to eat and drink, provided by the members attending. Whatever the meeting is about, there is generally a bit of a get together before & after. This is where you can collar someone to ask how to do something, or to give you the benefit of their experience. It isn't long before you will feel comfortable giving others your advice. You never finish learning in this game!!
We hold monthly meetings and social get-togethers, usually structured around a particular topic, but sometimes just for a natter to like-minded people. Obviously it's not a compulsory condition of being a member, but the help and experience you can tap into at a meeting is worth the travelling!
I can now confirm the venue for January's talk on Quail. We shall be meeting at Bishop Norton Village Hall. This is a new venue for us and is situated close to the A15 so you don't have to drive too far from civilisation to find it!
We now have a meeting on January 11th, thanks to Sharron who has volunteered to do a talk about Quail. Sharron has been rearing Quail for some years now and regularly sells eggs at Farmers Markets and LSSSC and LOGO events. She will also bring along some birds to sell at the meeting.
The Heneage Arms proved to be a splendid venue for our November Pub Meet. No longer just a fish & chip menu, there was a good pub menu on offer and several piled up plates were demolished! It was just as well that Sarah had booked a large table for us.
A good turn out ensured a jolly evening despite the foggy conditions outside. We had our first raffle, a bottle of homemade Medlar Wine, which was won by Neville who hopefully got it home without it exploding. Weather permitting we will be back again for our January Pub Meet so do try to give it a go. It's hard to believe that the pub is run by volunteers and it is well worth a visit. I know there were some photos taken so if anyone could get those posted on the site, I'd appreciate it.
Many thanks to Trev for organising the venue - I know he had to do a lot of research beforehand....
Our December Christmas meal on the 14th has now been booked up, so if you didn't contact me I'm afraid there is 'no more room at the inn!' You will be missing out on the chance to win a fabulous smallholding hamper, not to mention a good lunch in lovely surroundings. You'll just have to make a New Year's resolution to book early next year!
