Our normal working parties were suspended for the Covid-19 emergency. We aim to re-start them as soon as the National Roadmap out of Lockdown permits – to be announced in the Newsletter.
Cripley Meadow is a very large site, and can only be managed if every member of the allotment community contributes. For instance
- Pruning the communal orchards
- Clearing and covering plots if left in a poor state by a departing member
- Burning the bonfire regularly
Members sign-up to two hours’ working party time each year although more is very welcome. Those who are unable to contribute their time may instead pay £20, but we would much rather have your time than your money!
Once Working Parties are reinstated, their dates will be published in our Diary Dates – usually on the second Sunday of each month (other than December) – from 10:30 at the green Association Shed (on the north-west corner of the site). We may need to instigate booking while numbers are limited by the Pandemic – we will let you know.
Please wear suitable clothing/footwear and remember suncream and a bottle of water on hot days.
