Hartswood Allotment Cleanup!

A big “Thank you” to all who helped during the past few days.

 

On Friday, we managed to clear away three trailer loads of scrap metal from the vicinity of plots 1, 2, and 3 (as well as from 5 and 16). Special thanks to Colin for providing the trailer.  And of course to G J Bowmer (Waste Disposal) Ltd who took the scrap.  They have also helped in the past with disposal of asbestos.

On Saturday we had a major fire on plot 118, the plot just inside the main gate.  This has cleared an awful lot of rubbish and allowed Jim to start digging. Many thanks for those who were able to help at such short notice.

There is still a lot of work to do on plot 118, which is now the community plot.  Any help with the digging would be much appreciated. Whenever you are available, and even when you are at your own plots, a few minutes digging would make a huge difference. Just turn the soil and heap up any weeds and roots you dislodge. We cannot leave it all to Jim.

And finally a big thank you to Olivier who has been working with his chainsaw to get proper access to plots 29 and 30 and open up the far corner.

I have attached a few photos I managed to take.

I hope we see you soon — especially helping recover plot 118.
