At your convenience…

This is Whitehill Allotment Society’s loo. It cost about £3000 and they obtained several sources of funding to raise that.

We are invited to visit on a Saturday afternoon in January for a look round and a pee. Who wants to come?

Our funky Trumpington pumpkin

We have Janet to thank for designing the society’s new logo which appears in the header above.

The design is officially a funky Trumpington pumpkin because it was inspired by the winning entry in the “Funky Vegetable” class at this year’s Cambridge Produce Show, which was grown at Foster Road allotments.

Communal compost heaps – rules of use


Dear all,
The communal compost heaps are for all to use, but rules must be followed:

  1. No plastics or polystyrene. The compost heaps are not trash areas for your plastic and seed trays and bags. These items do not compost. Please recycle/dispose of at home, as appropriate.
  2. No potato and tomato material. Please put this in your green bin at home. This is to avoid the spread of late blight on our site.
  3. Polytunnel users: please do not put your spent compost on the heaps. Spread it around your outside plot instead.

Currently the only heap in use is the righthand one south of the polytunnel. Please don’t use the lefthand or middle ones.
If you have any questions about composting don’t hesitate to ask,
Pat
