Water-harvesting scheme moves forward


Work has been continuing on the water-harvesting scheme with the laying of a feeder pipe to water barrels on individual plots.

This work involved trenching along one of the main allotment paths which has, inevitably, caused disruption and created a build-up of mud.

The association’s chairman, Tony Fursland, offers his apologies to plotholders  who have been inconvenienced and says the committee will be organising working parties as soon as possible to put things back to normal.

Don’t forget your spuds

If you ordered seed potatoes from Terry Johnson in the autumn now is the time to collect them.

They will be available for collection from the site shop in the large container on Saturday from 10am to noon.

You will need to pay for your order on collection. The potatoes, which are £1.10 per kg, come in 2kg bags.
