IMPORTANT - whenever the last vehicle on site leaves, drivers must close the gates behind them (even if cyclists and plotholders on foot are still working).


Please be considerate to neighbours when lighting bonfires, and follow Site Rules.


As we are now in the UK nesting season, no further hedge cutting should take place.

Please continue to water new saplings as necessary until they settle in, and keep the rear of plots free from debris.

Pest Control

Please use the Pest Control Book in the Main Shed to note any problems so that the pest control company can deal appropriately.
