Virtual AGM To avoid having to gather too many people in one place we will be hosting this year’s AGM online via Zoom Thursday 30th September.
Full details of all these events will be made available by email and our social media accounts
Just to remind you that tomorrow’s working party will start at 10.00 am.
We will be doing a general tidy up around the site and hope to lay new wide-bore pipework around the site which should greatly reduce the time taken to fill the containers.
Volunteers should bring any strimmers or mowers they have and we will get the various paths really sorted.
Following the work you can enjoy a free barbecue from 1.00 pm onwards.
If you have any special dietary needs please bring your own food.
In addition Diana Hector will begin painting plot number signs for those without them. These will be bog standard unless you attend and make reasonable suggestions. You can request a flower decoration or maybe bring a watering can to be decorated. If you neighbour has no number do spread the word!
Alwoodley Allotment holders and prospective allotment holders are being offered the chance to help shape the future of allotment provision across the city, as part of an on-line survey set to be launched next week.
Now in its 28th year, the Abbey Runners’ Hollybank Eccup 10 is back on Sunday 27th June.
This will affect vehicle access to the allotments on Eccup Moor Road and the whole of Eccup Moor Road will be closed between 9.00am and 12.30pm (approx.) and Abbey Runners would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused.
Advance warning signage is already in place at the entry points into the road closure area, and they intend to put a sign on the allotment gates this weekend explaining the situation.
