Allotment Charity & Bonfire News Update
To find out more about the Allotments visit their webpage on this site. The Allotment Holders are continuing their donations to the Charity Table where you can buy fresh produce and help local charities. They are also keen to ensure that you are aware of their bonfires which are held several times a year to dispose of material that can not be recycled.

Whilst every effort on the allotment is undertaken to recycle generated waste, diseased and sprayed waste cannot be recycled; to minimise exposure to rodents this waste is burnt. Every effort is made to ensure the fire is maintained within the guidelines laid down whilst seeking to minimise disruption or inconvenience to the residential community. The fire is also used as to dispose of waste generated by the community ‘Handyperson’ after clearing hedges, shrub waste, long grass cutting etc.
