There is a wide range of goods available in the Stores which is open on Sunday mornings, 10:00 till 11.30

NOTICE BOARDS

I try to keep these updated with news.

PAVILION

The kitchen is well-stocked with tea/coffee/milk/sugar/biscuits/cold drinks.  Please leave a donation in the container provided.

E-MAIL GROUP

I send regular emails to around 60 of our plotholders.  Please give me your email address if you would like to be included

 FACEBOOK GROUP

We have a Facebook group for members of our allotments.

WORK PARTY

Meets as and when necessary to do work around the site.  New guttering and boards have been put up on one block of lockers, the others will be completed later in the year. Please consider helping if you can.


CLEANING THE SITE

We are very grateful to the plotholders who give their time and effort to help keep our site looking clean and tidy.  Litter-picking, taking rubbish to the tip and toilet-cleaning are very important and much appreciated.  We know who you are, so........ thank you very much!


SHEDS AND GREENHOUSES

You will have the use of a shed, shared with another plotholder. You are allowed to erect a shed and/or a greenhouse on your plot.


WATERING YOUR PLOT

Council rules do not allow us to water our plots with a hose.  A hose can only be used for filling water butts (available from the Stores) 

STAND PIPES

The use of stand pipes is restricted to the following times:-
Tuesday mornings 10 till 1,
Thursday afternoons 1 - 4,
Saturday and Sunday 10 - 4.

The water is turned off at all other times.  Please save rainwater wherever possible.  Please mulch your plants so that they don't need watering often.  

 

GROWN TOO MUCH?

We often find that we have grown more than we can possibly eat.  Friends and neighbours hide when they see us approaching with bags full of courgettes. There are a few things you can do with your unwanted produce -

  • Leave it at the front of the pavilion for other plotholders to help themselves to

  • Contact the Cats Protection (number on the noticeboard) who will use it to raise funds
  • Donate it to your local residential care home
  • Donate it to a Sikh temple (I can give you more details)

  BONFIRES

The Council allotment rules only allow us to have bonfires in March and November, after 4pm weekdays and after 12 noon Saturday and Sunday.  Please do not light fires in windy conditions, and please stay with the fire till it is out.

AND FINALLY.....

If you have any problems, please come and see me on my plot (54) and we will try to sort them out.  Alternatively, email me
