Cae Ffynon Win is situated along the picturesque River Aeron, slotted nicely between Panteg Road and South Road Aberaeron, on a site formerly used as a garden centre and market garden.
The Association was formed approximately eight years ago by six founder members and their families; six plots were created and duly fenced off for ‘rabbit protection’ – a somewhat unnecessary effort as it turned out, as, for some unfathomable reason, there do not appear to be any rabbits in our vicinity, and the fencing has since been removed.
Because of the hard work and enterprise of these individuals, much interest was generated by outside parties in obtaining a plot for themselves.
Additional land was acquired from Ceredigion County Council under licence, for the growing of fruit, vegetables and flowers; in all, we now have seventeen plots available for cultivation.
ABERAERON ALLOTMENT ASSOCIATION
CHAIRMAN’S REPORT 13/11/2021
Hello to all our intrepid gardeners…..what a few years we have had! I can probably speak for everybody
when I say that our little plots near the river have provided a safe and enjoyable haven throughout the last two years.
As a result the plots have been blooming and fruiting with a vengeance both this summer and last summer.
I thought I would share some of the work that we have carried out over the last few years.
- Water: we have always had problems with water from the hill behind the site. With heavy rain the water would gush through the hedge and into the allotment site. To remedy this we took the bull by the horns, hired a digger, bought some pipes and redirected the water to the Leat that runs along the border of the site.
2. The flowers and veg that we offer to the local community continues to be a big success.
3. In addition to the communal shed which we installed quite a few years ago we have now bought a new shed to store communal garden machinery.
4. In the summer this year members and friends came together for a BBQ and the weather for once was gorgeous. the sun shone, the wine flowed and there was lots of laughter.
5. In the last few weeks we have brought back the digger and have dug a large pond to attract an abundance of local wildlife to the site
6. We have now bought a portaloo – a shortage of portaloos for sale in England and Wales meant that it came from Dorset and is pink – but it does the job!
Finally a big thank you to all our members who help maintain the site and to Matt Mathias for repairing the steps to our communal shed.
We all look forward to another year and many hours of happy gardening
