WASTE MATERIAL

Any waste material should either be composted on your allotment or removed from the site. This MUST NOT be left at the end of your allotment or dumped anywhere on site.
There have recently been issues where the build up of waste material has created problems in allowing water to flow. Additionally, waste material has also provided a home for vermin.

COVID -19

We ask that you please adhere strictly to the social distancing guidelines set out by the Government.

If you are self isolating and not going to your allotment, please advise your Site Warden. However, if you have a family member/friend looking after your plot then please advise the Warden so they are aware.

Please do not burn anything on your plots during this Covid-19 emergency. Many sites are surrounded by houses where vulnerable people may be getting their only bit of fresh air through an open window.

BIRDS CAUGHT IN NETTING

We have had several reports of birds becoming trapped in netting on allotment sites. Please do regular visual checks of your nets to make sure they are well secure with no openings.

The Society need people of all ages to come on board and take part in the running of the organisation. If you would like to help please make yourself known to your warden or contact us.

  1. Hi, we are a Chippenham primary school needing help to put up a 12×15 ft polytunnel. Would you have anyone willing or able to help?

  2. I have numerous guinea pigs and on a weekly basis have bags of waste which may be of use to help boost your compost heap. I can separate the shavings from the bedding which will consist of hay, sometimes a tiny amount of barley straw , any greens not eaten ie carrots, kale etc and most importantly lots of pig poo which is in pellet form .i am just off the Malmesbury Road and it is available weekly . If shavings are wanted as well the quantity will be 12 extra large black refuse bags weekly .
    It’s currently taken to the recycling centre but I’d rather it be recycled

  3. We have lots of sheets of wool insulation from food delivery boxes. We’ve used it for cat beds, bird nesting material and around seedlings but have still developed a stockpile!
    We also have lots of spare soil if anyone wants to bring a bag and fill up.
    If you’re interested in either, please get in touch. We’re in central Chippenham.
