On this day you can also buy supplies from our allotment shop.

Plant Sale and grounds maintenance a great success

Todays plant sale and grounds maintenance was a great success.

Thanks to everyone who donated plants and there are still some spares available outside the hut. If you take any please leave a donation in the hut.

The tea, coffee and cakes is always a good bit of encouragement.

The site shop did some good trade today, the canes proving to be very popular yet again. This is helped by the fact they are very good quality.

Regarding the grounds maintenance, it was fantastic to see so many people helping today and if ever there was proof that many hands make light work, this was it. I know when I was thanking people a couple of you said “but I didn’t do much”, and that’s kind of the point, if each of us do a little bit, we get an awful lot done. Thank you everyone.

There is still some work to be done on the Westbourne Park fence where we have trimmed a bit back along the whole length today, and myself and John were then cutting closer to the fence so it is a lot tidier. If anyone is available next Sunday, it will be much of the same, sweeping and chucking bits into a barrow.

Whilst outside the ground we also got some very positive comments from the residents opposite who said that it was great to see everyone working together to make the outside of the ground look good. They also thanked us for mowing the grass verges, it is nice to see our hard work is being noticed and appreciated.

Gate to the carpark entrance

We are aware that the lock on the gate to the carpark is a quite difficult to use. It is lockable, but requires careful closing of the lock to ensure it is in the right position. The best way to do this is to push the loop right in and let it bounce back a little. We are looking at trying to sort this (it is due to the position the lock sits on the new design of gate). In the meantime please do not leave the gate unlocked. If you struggle to close this gate please use the other gate and walk around.

Thanks in advance for your understanding and patience.
