to take what available land

was left which included the 

Hill. For sometime the idea was

to sublet the Hill but it was left 

in abeyance. The main factor that

induced the committe to take all 

the remaining land was that the 

fencing, etc would cost more than

ploughing etc. of the whole plot. 

It was passed to take this plot. 

So the committe saw that we had

the land ploughed + harrowed, also

that we purchase the seed potatoes. 

Unfortunately at this juncture some 

of the members took plots of their own.
