I’m delighted to announce that he drilling for the bore hole will start on Tuesday, 23rd July.
You may want to take photos of the ongoing project and you are more than welcome but please do so safely and without hindering the drilling team.
We ask that your photos are not published on social media etc until after the project is completed. The last thing we need is for thieves to be alerted to the fact some extremely expensive equipment is on site.
We are also expecting visits from our local parish councillors who wish to see the progress we have made in our three year occupancy of the site.
On the 30 July officers from Parks & Countryside and Councillor Mohammed Rafique, Executive Board Member for Environment and Active Lifestyles, from Leeds City Council will be paying us a visit.
This is part of a programme of meetings being held between Leeds Allotments Federation and Parks and Countryside aimed at keeping both sides aware of ongoing problems in the allotment community and decisions at Leeds City Council and Parks and Countryside which will affect us in the future.
It would be a good idea therefore, that those of you who have been asked to bring your plots up to scratch will start to do so and for all of us to make every attempt to smarten up the rest of the field by helping to cut down some of the overgrown areas which are out of use at present.
Making a good impression can only benefit us. You never know what we might achieve with the help of these people with future financial support and advice.
Finally congratulations to the winners of our best plot awards. If you are looking for inspiration and ideas you could do worse than visit these outstanding plots.
