Junior Pumpkin Competition
The council are having difficulties funding the payment of water for allotment sites, the water bill is huge. They want us to use as little as possible of main water from the water taps.
If you have a suitable hut they are keen to encourage plot holders to save rainwater by attaching gutters and water butts to store the water. If you are able to do this…a big ‘thank you’ from us. Note two or more water butts can be joined to save even more!
PLEASE USE WATER SENSIBLY AND REPORT ANY LEAKS SHOULD THEY OCCUR
