Date for your diary
Halloween Pumpkin Trail, Saturday October 27
This year’s theme is Witches and Wizards, so do start thinking about magical and mystical enhancements for your plots. The scarier, the better!
Just a reminder to use water thoughtfully in this hot weather. Recently taps have been left running, leading to overflowing tanks and wasted water. We are on a water meter and higher bills could mean higher rents for plotholders.
Please follow these common sense guidelines:
- When you’ve finished watering, always turn the tap off.
- If you’re watering at the same time as someone else, tell them if you finish first.
- Leave the tank full for the next person.
On site security guidelines
Intruders have been seen on site recently after gates have been left unlocked. Here are a few reminders about how to keep the site secure.
Always keep the gate locked, even if you are popping out briefly or working nearby. Check that the gate is locked correctly.
If you find a gate unlocked, please lock it.
Don't let unfamiliar people through a gate unless they have an allotment key.
Visitors should be met at the gate by the plot holder they are visiting. Don't let in other plot holders' visitors.
