SITE IMPROVEMENT WORKS

Last January the committee drew up a plan of works for both site and buildings. Thanks to the invaluable efforts of our volunteers we have achieved the following: a new underground water supply to the Trading Centre, Polytunnel and Hall, a new water pipe was laid by the Glenthorne Ave area, where once there was a mere trickle of water, now plot-holders enjoy normal water pressure, CCTV and motion sensitive cameras have been installed throughout the site, new picnic benches were purchased and a major revamp of the trading centre was completed. Part of the decision to spruce up the trading centre was the closure of the Shirley Wyevale garden centre. A successful advertising campaign for our Greenfinger membership has resulted in increased sales.The canteen refurbishment is well under way and we hope to be back from our temporary home in the hall sometime in February. Many thanks to all the volunteers and Peter’s working party that have helped so far, much appreciated.
