Please note that all site wardens are also committee members, a list can be found on the Sites page.
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.
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.
