In June 2022 we received £ 10,000 from the Lottery Community Fund towards the purcase and installation of a composting toilet for the site. We hope to have it installed by the end of the summer. Cross your legs!
20 Sept 2014 Water inspection We recently had an inspection by Thames Water/ the Environment Agency. One of the key issues that arose is that by law every hose on our allotments must have a trigger device at the spray end of the hose. We have a stock of suitable triggers at the trading hut so please get one as soon as possible if you need one. There is the possibility of a £100 fine if you are caught not using one. We are also expecting a follow up inspection in two weeks' time so we have little time to comply. If we don't comply, there is the possibility that they will try to prevent us from using hoses at all. Could you also tell any neighbours on the allotments who might not have access to the internet.
