Working Party Success

A very big "Thank You" to all those people who helped this morning (17th March).  More than 20 of you turned out to help, and as a result a great deal was achieved - in fact much more than we thought possible, when the work was first planned.

The brambles that extended from the main car park to the Dartnell Park culvert have been cleared and the course of the ditch has been identified. Approximately half of the ditch has been cleared of leaves and other debris. This resulted in the collection of 10 sacks of assorted rubbish which has been taken to the Martyrs Lane facility.

There is some further work to carry out on the ditch and it is hoped that another working party can be arranged in the near future.

ps (Later that same day)

Having just been back down to inspect the ditch following all the rain we've had I was delighted to see water draining in and running through as far as we had cleared.  Brilliant!

Summer BBQ 2012 - a sunny success

The allotments BBQ on Sunday 8th July was well attended, with around 50 tickets sold, and lots of food prepared, cooked and eaten.  And to round it all off the clouds parted, the sun shone, and it was warm - almost like summer really!

As you would imaging from allotment holders, there were no leftovers of any of the 10 or so different salads, and the main course and puddings proved popular too.

Many thanks to the organiser Sue Booker and all those who helped prepare dishes and clear away afterward.

Woking Allotments Competition and Woking in Bloom

Cancelled due to drought

Due to the drought the allotments competition and Woking in Bloom have both been cancelled by Woking Borough Council.

Quote: "It is important that the Council and residents support the water companies at this challenging time and as a result, the Council feels it is appropriate not to encourage behaviour which may increase water consumption and further stretch local water resources."
