  • 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.

    Email from Sara Bell GGAA Chair of Committee
    Dear Plotholders,
    We are holding our annual BBQ again this year after popular request and it would be really great if you could come along. We will have a big BBQ and will provide some food and refreshments but if you would like to bring something that would be even better, salads, bread, meat for the BBQ all welcome. It will take place on the main grass path by the Trading Hut early afternoon on the Sunday obviously weather permitting but we are hoping to be lucky! Look forward to seeing you and we will put up some posters with the confirmed time this weekend and I will email the time in a couple of days if you don't manage to see a poster.
    We don't yet have everyone's email so please, if you see your neighbouring plot holder, make sure that they know about it.
    many thanks
