There will be two working parties this week – on Friday and Saturday, from 10am. Please help if you can.
The first working party of 2018 will take place on Saturday, March 24. Committee members plan to work on repairs to the road. If you can spare an hour or two, your help would be gratefully received. Meet at 10am in the main car park.
*Just a reminder that the big container will be open for sales on Saturday from 10am to 11am.
A group of committee members and other plotholders set to work on the water-harvesting and composting area in the top car park at the weekend.
They painted the structure and levelled the ground behind it ready for the water barrels to be installed.
Strimming was also carried out on other areas of the site.
Pearl Barton kindly provided the volunteers with tea, coffee and bacon rolls when the work was finished.
The committee is holding another working party this Saturday (May 13). If you are able to help please meet in the main car park at about 1pm (NB not the usual time of 10am).
A few committee members and other plotholders took up their watering cans at the weekend to water the barbecue area by the large container where grass seed was sown recently.
The grass is growing well but needed a helping hand in this dry spell. The water used was all rainwater collected from the water harvester in the main car park.
The working party also strimmed public areas on the site and carried out other maintenance work.
There will be not one but two working parties this weekend to carry out general maintenance work at the site. If you can help in any way please meet at the main car park at 10am on Saturday or Sunday.
It may not look much now but a small working party has finished preparing the area by the large container and has sown grass seed there ready for the barbecue season.
Today’s working party carried on clearing the ground beside the big container so that grass can be sown there in spring.
We had two rotovators in action and a small team of helpers picking up rubble, glass and all manner of other debris in their wake
And this is what it looked like at the end of the morning.
The committee is holding another working party this Saturday (February 18). If you are able to help please meet in the main car park at about 10am.
A small group of committee members and other plot holders set to work this morning filling in potholes on the site’s roads.
They also continued working on the barbecue area by the container .
