If you wish to stand for the Committee or one of the named roles please can you email your name and the name of the person seconding your nomination and the role you wish to stand

Security

Please can you ensure that gates are always locked when entering and exiting the allotments. We have recently had a couple of instances when fruit has been removed from allotments and locking the gates will help prevent this sort of theft.

If you have a friend/neighbour visiting the site to water and pick produce whilst you are on holiday please can you also ensure that they lock the gates and are aware that they are only to take produce and flowers from your allotment not other peoples.

Bonfires

We have had a number of complaints about bonfires on the site. Although we are currently able to have bonfires, please can you ensure that you are only burning dry organic material. Any other waste must disposed of either in your domestic/greenbag waste or at the recycling centres in Greenford and Acton.
