The work to erect the Gazebo is now complete.
Pictures of the whole process are available in the Gallery.
REFURBISHMENT OF THE TOILETS.
Good news is that the work has been carried out. Funding for this was provided by Sutton Coldfield Charitable Trust.
Unfortunately we cannot take advantage of them yet as they are still closed as part of the COVID-19 guidelines.
We now have over 30 people on the waiting list.
We will still accept people onto the list if they wish to be added.
We have been advised that plotholders can continue to attend site to tend their plots so long as we all follow the government guidelines on social distancing.
Delivery of chippings has started again but still no straw yet due to the COVID-19 lockdown.
More information on the Coronavirus can be found using the link below.
Over the last few weeks of December 2020, we have had several plotholders helping out on site clearing the driveways and any areas that needed weeding and tidying.
A BIG THANKS to all that have helped out.
National Citizen Scheme
We had another visit from the NCS teenagers. They were on site in November 2019 to discuss our next plan of action and returned again on the 23rd to carry out what we had agreed to undertake.
Thanks to them again for another good day of activity.
Thanks also to all the committee members that turned up and put a lot of hard work into clearing the area for a new wood chip bay.
More detail about the volunteer day are on the latest newsletter.
In September 2019 the overgrown area by the Spinney was grassed over. Thanks to everyone who helped to barrow the rolls of turf and get it put down.
Pictures of all the activities are available in the Gallery.

Do your bit for the British Wildlife.
The RSPCA receives hundreds of calls every year to rescue wildlife which has become tangled in netting, football nets or fishing litter.
Forms of garden netting, [such as that for] pond or fruit, can be a real hazard to wild animals like Hedgehogs and birds, and the RSPCA would recommend replacing them with solid metal mesh.
If you spot an animal which is trapped, in distress, or in need of help, contact the RSPCA’s 24-hour cruelty line on 0300 1234 999
Hedgehogs are now coming out of hibernation so you can start to put out food supplements for them.
Foxes are regularly sighted and help to keep the vermin population down.
