After the AGM there were more Pressing Matters to get on with!
Congratulations to the Serpentine Community Farm on celebrating their first AGM in the most appropriate way.

"A lovely Apple Day was held at the Serpentine Community Farm on 18th September complemented by the balmy autumn weather. A good number of people dropped in to say hello, including folk just passing through the park as well as members and dedicated volunteers.
Martin Stokes, was a welcome addition to the day, with his fine selection of apple varieties on sale. Apples were pressed with gusto, thanks to the loan of the apple press from Bamford Quaker Community.
The day concluded with our first General Meeting. Two new Directors were appointed and members were updated on the progress made in the previous year, including the renovation of the greenhouse to its former glory, the installation of a new Poly-tunnel, raised beds and cold frames to boost productive growing space, as well as the near completion of the compost toilet.
We updated the success of various projects including the highly successful Grow Wild project with Buxton & Leek College students.
All of the progress made at the site could not have been possible without the all the amazing volunteer help along the way, including our weekly visits from Alderbrook and all the individuals and teams who have dropped in to help, and continue to do so. Here’s to another productive year down at the Farm!"
