  •          Do not share tools and eliminate contact with each other, for example, no handshakes

13th July 2020

The recent weather conditions mean that we are vulnerable to an attack of Potato and Tomato Blight. Click on the button to see an example on the RHA website. It can attack both potato and tomato plants and can devastate the crops. If you suspect you have Blight, please inform John or a committee member. Any affected foliage should be removed immediately and taken off site – Under no circumstances compost the foliage – dispose of it in your Garden Waste bin at home or in the rubbish bin if you don’t subscribe to the Garden Waste scheme.

If you need any further information or are unsure if you have Blight affected plants please see John or Eddy.

The demand for compost has continued to outstrip our supplies, and we currently have no multi-purpose in stock.

The next delivery is scheduled for Thursday 11th June 2020 and will be available for sale through the shop on Sunday 14th June, using the normal social distancing rules we have established in line with government guidelines.

Parking in Greenvale

Please read and comply with the request below

Parking in Greenvale is limited and residents have made complaints that plot holders have been parking in the street, instead of inside our site in the designated parking areas. Please refrain from parking in Greenvale and use the designated parking on our site, so that we can maintain a good relationship with our neighbours.

Shop opening times

Please note the new opening times

Under normal circumstances i.e. after COVID 19 restrictions no longer apply, from January to October, the shop will open as usual from 10.30 -12.00 every Sunday. For November and December, the shop opening hours will be reduced to 1 hour from 10.30 - 11.30, but will now be open every Sunday, as opposed to every second weekend as in the past.

Site security

Please lock the gate

Please ensure that, apart from Sunday mornings, the site gate is always locked after entry and exit in order to ensure the site remains as secure as possible. On a number of recent occasions, the gate has been found open and this obviously puts the site at greater risk from unauthorised entry, damage and theft. We are fortunate that the fence and gate provide reasonably good security for the site and we have enjoyed a fairly long period without problems. Please let's keep it that way by being vigilant and keeping the gate locked.
