Neat & Tidy

By | August 21, 2023

Looks like the committee have been hard at work. The tall grasses and weeds either side of the fence have been cut-back. Not a quick job but it looks brilliant. So neat and tidy.

Paths

By | July 16, 2023

A reminder – as grass cutting continues, please keep the paths clear.  We can’t cut the grass if there are stones or debris in the way.  Stones can be particularly bad for the lawnmower and dangerous for the person mowing.  

Also, the path to the right of your plot (with your back to the parking lot) is your responsibility to keep mowed.  The smaller lawnmower might work on some of the side paths if you struggle with the strimmer.

Mowers’

Again thank you all mowers’ for helping to keep the allotment tidy.  

Just a reminder please don’t use the  grass collection boxes as when they are full, they lead to grass accumulation by the drive belt pulley and can cause the belt to come off.  It is better to allow the cut grass to stay on the freshly cut area.  

Theft from car

By | July 16, 2023

Yesterday one of the allotmenteers had her phone stolen from her car.  She had seen a car, with two young men in it, drive up and thought they didn’t look like allotments holders, but didn’t give it much thought.  

When she went back to her car later, her phone was gone and other stuff was strewn about the floor. 

This is a very unsettling event.  Please be on the alert and keep your car locked at all times and don’t keep valuables in the car . . . .

If you feel more comfortable, you can close the bottom gate or lock the top gate while working on the allotment.
